LOCATIVE BREATHING


For the "Locative Breathing" project, a side-car bicycle greenhouse was produced. A very specific canary endemic plant (the "Drago Canario" or "Dracaena Draco") was installed inside the greenhouse to act as a portable filter for the cyclist during his rides around the local environment. The breathing connected the tube and mask of the cyclist with the interior of the greenhouse: This generated a mutual feedback between the exhaled CO2 of the cyclist and the oxygen produced by the Drago and, of course, a local immersion in the sensitive nature of the plant itself.

This work is a symbolic statement about the concept of human interdependence and interference in the local adaptation of natural environments.
