PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

The proposal involves the creation of a closed system that is regarded as a techno-biological organism of the future, bioengineered specifically to fight pollution off our environment. Inspired by the autopoiesis theory, developed by Humberto Maturana and Francisco Varela in the 1970s, this system consists of a network of entities with responsive relationships that render it autonomous and adaptable. The organism sustains itself on the principals of aeroponics, using moisture (to acquire water) and dust (to acquire nutrients), while it filters the air from CO2 and various VOC toxic gases that our civilized society produces through its everyday activities. As a response to the growing concern on environmental pollution, this "artificial life" specimen is created to purify exterior and interior environments through a process that is visible, audible, and moreover animated. The overall concept is inspired by Ant Farm’s “Clean Air Pod” project (1970) as well as by Hayao Miyazaki’s anime film Nausicaä (1984).
