The Body Garden
Collaboration with Pleun van Dijk
The Body Garden starts from the idea that, for lack of better alternatives, organic waste created by the human body becomes increasingly valuable on Mars. In the installation, familiar bodily materials are preserved in data imprinted airtight bags, alongside the required tools to harvest them. While evoking a sense of familiarity and identification, the installation manifests the concept of the human body as a garden to grow, harvest, and use bodily materials. What was once regarded as trash turns into a vital resource to sustain our everyday needs on the red planet.
