Concept







 



Responsive structure that augments the plants reaction to humans interaction, based in the principle of “Tensegrity”

(x)tension is an installation that reacts according to the plant reaction to humans. Metaphorically, it represents an communication of the plant feelings, providing the expression of movements denied as a static creature.
As a consequence, when it shrinks and expand its shape, it is able to express its reactions against external environmental and human inputs.
