Balancing landscapes

Klarenbeek & Dros

Klarenbeek & Dros made this landscape of modular elements, 3D printed with Algae Biopolymers from Wierwaar. In these elements green algae grow on hydrogels, capturing carbon whilst producing oxygen. This project explores the use of new vegetation; Skipping plants and replacing them for one-cellular chlorophyllic organisms (Algae). These have higher growth rates and higher photosynthetic efficiencies than terrestrial plants, so they are more efficient in capturing atmospheric (CO2 > O2 conversion), and easier in maintenance. The project is shown on a table beaten from seaweed.
