When. I. Landed

Plastic, foil, tape, string, metal, glass, polymer clay


A portable shelter made from single use plastic. This precious material is stitched into a makeshift tent that is being used as a greenhouse for growing polymers. The fragility of the structure and naivety of the laboratory inside reflects a vulnerability of humanlike activity. Despite being surrounded by abundant life, the absent Martian is using its limited resources to make synthetic material. The absurdity of this action in this environment questions our reality - our focus on survival through technology - which ignores the multiplicity of worlds around us.
