Symbiosis
sym·bi·o·sis
noun
BIOLOGY
1. interaction between two different organisms living in close physical association, typically to the advantage of both.

Symbiosis is an interactive piece about our gas exchange with trees. CO2 and Oxygen float visibly and interact with viewers accordingly.

Concept:
Symbiosis is an attempt to show the mutually beneficial interaction between trees and humans. This project is a result of research into teaching people facts without my environmental bias. For example, in this project (an interactive installation showing the gas exchange between trees and humans), I only show nature doing its breathing process…nothing more, nothing less. As visitors walk in front of the video projection, oxygen enters into their vicinity while CO2 appears to leave their position towards the trees.
