All your yesterdays
Make new homes in the future
For slow green giants
Coloniae is a series of artifacts about the relationship between man and plant. The items in the series are conceived as dwellings for a colony, and as such are created with a predefined form. However, each structure is designed to interact with the plant it houses, allowing it to grow over it, redefining its appearance. Over time, the plant will begin to interact with the object through its roots and leaves, eventually colonising it. In this way, Coloniae rethinks the vase (and other complementary artifacts) as content rather than container, and the plants as agents in the definition of a hybrid organism co-participated by human action.
Vase with structure made of perforated aluminium sheets with matt copper or matt bronze finishing. Central structural sheet and container element in aluminium with matt silver finishing.
