Through the exploration of the interconnectedness of our inner and outer world, the artists demonstrate the patterns and forms within life that shape who we are and where we come from. The use of natural and electro-mechanical systems, formed from ancient and contemporary modes of art and technology, creates an imitation of life (biomimicry) within a contained space, where the visitor can realize the impact of their individual actions upon the whole environment. This deep awareness of one’s influence upon their surroundings empowers the individual to make conscious decisions in everyday life that contribute to a more positive universal well-being.

As soon as the visitor enters the space, they become an invaluable part of the environment, producing reactive environmental responses and adaptations based on their own personal choices. The integrated systems constantly evolve due to hyper-sensitive sensors and data systems that react to influences both inside and outside the space, creating an individualized experience for every visitor.
