Self circulation / 15. Life on Land

Self circulation
Self circulation

Global mining, deforestation and other impacts cause soil loss, which threatens the ecosystem. Although China insists on returning farmland to forest, plants can not survive in some places with bad environment. This design extracts inspiration from nature to form a small circulation system. Self circulation design solves the problem of plants dying due to lack of water. Self circulation uses plastic film to form dew water with the temperature difference between the plastic film and the environment, so as to irrigate the plants and make them survive. It can enhance the survival probability of plants without artificial cultivation.
