From my studio, I looked everyday at the office towers and I started thinking about the people going to work in such an artificial living environment and how we had built all kinds of artificial living quarters in the city for other living species such as the zoo and aquarium. Inspired by those, I started making myself a city body suit, an hybrid between a diving suit and a space suit. A fantasy suit made from recycled plastic containers, mainly egg containers, which individually looked much like a tower. My body became like a tower that could be lit at night and stand out alone. As I was connected to the grid and I was isolated from contact.
I have also assembled structures that would allow me to float and be ever ready to enter the water. This will be particularly useful when the water level rises. One is a dress and the other an insect shell as Insects are predicted as the species that will thrive with climate change: I am practicing at becoming one.
