Project in collaboration with NASA, Houston.
The organic space suit illustrates our dependence on nature in a non-human environment like Mars by embracing the astronaut with low-tech plants as a high-tech radiation resistant garment.
The skin tight space suit concept is radiation resistant due to that it is made of an organic genetically modified bacteria and plant material. With every breath exhaled, the carbon dioxide and moisture facilitate the germination of the embedded culture.
With this project I wanted to question our future space vision involving only man-made technology.
