Lungplant • Breathing light organism
The Lungplant depicts a landscape of living, luminous organisms. It's a dynamic kinetic sculpture consisting of different, illuminated, spherical textile ‘lungs’ which inhale and exhale air. These inhaling and exhaling ‘organs’ show a very natural movement in a continuous cycle. The installation explores the symbioses between the (artificial) organism and the (organic) spectator. The calming breathing motion of the Lungplant works relaxing and can influence your own breathing pattern when you spend some time around it. On each breathing cycle a small light inside a lung pulses and the delicate fiber structure becomes visible.
