Project

Homeostasis

Groups

A large-scale art installation that investigates the biological systems that represent and embody human life, and their relationship to the built environment. This synthetic organism, built from interconnected microbiological systems, will be sustained in part through its own feedback and feedforward loops, but also through interactions with the architectural systems (like HVAC). As the different systems react and exchange material inputs and outputs, they move towards homeostasis. In the process, Homeostasis creates a new landscape of the human body, in which we can experience the wonder and vulnerability of its interconnected systems.
