The complexity of the biosphere is still far from our understanding. It is a sophisticated organism composed by co-dependent ecosystems, and has been compromised by our globalized economy disrupting its homeostatic balance. Recreating closed ecological systems, creates opportunities to understand how the process of life is generated by the entanglement of self-organizing systems, without furthering the expansionist model of human development, on earth and in space.
Biosphere – Flying Garden is an ongoing investigation, comprehending how we can recalibrate the impact of our sociosphere and re-learn how to inhabit the earth, together with it and its multiple forms of life.
“The creation of a closed ecological system will be fundamental in deepening our still limited understanding of the ecosphere and the possibility of reversing our dysfunctional relationship with it.”

“This is where we start to speculate about a ‘Greater Aerocene’ – the contemporary biosphere in its coexistence of very different entities all interacting and making each other evolve (…)”
