Living Things

‘Living Things’ is the title of a living art installation created by the design studio of the same name. It is currently on display in the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Mattress Factory in Pittsburg, PA. Here is an excerpt of the press release:

“The installation; ‘Living Things’ contains furniture of a possible and not too distant future where the symbiosis between human beings and microorganisms is externalized and celebrated in the built environment… 

…This installation reveals the phenomenological qualities of the highly beneficial micro-algae and challenges visitors to consider what the future of the domestic environment may become in the context of the precarious agricultural and energy needs of a ballooning population.”
