Project/Mission Statement

Experimenting with natural materials and modern technologies, this project aims to create an immersive AR environment for the audience to experience nature in an interior setting. With 3D-modeled plants three stories high, standing and moving, the project invites the audience to think about the relationship between our species and the environment, and considers anthropogenic changes around the globe. The contrast between the enclosed concrete buildings and the plants’ original habitats encourages the viewer to find a balance between different,sometimes even opposing, ideas of existing and coexisting.
