The project aims re-imagine the streets of the 21st century and explore the possibility of using carbon extracted from the atmosphere through carbon sequestration to develop glossy monolithic landscapes, thus reducing the amount of carbon in the atmosphere and creating a ‘new nature’.
We created an ecosystem of machines that together perform a ‘ballet’ where the machines form, carve, and sculpt the carbon gardens and the autonomous vehicles zip by the streets, while humans, mostly tangential, can experience this ever-changing and dynamic landscape.
