Breathing light organism/ Work in progress
The Lungplant is a dynamic moving sculpture consisting of different, illuminated,
spherical textile ‘lungs’ that 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.
Membrane-like air filters nested inside the lungs filter the inhaled air and clean the air around it.
