RADIANT SOIL by Philip Beesley

“Radiant Soil forms interlinking clouds of industrial design biomimetic components of polymer, metal and glass, arranged in suspended filter layers contain a near-living carbon-capture metabolism. Frond-clusters fitted with shape-memory alloy mechanisms react to viewers as they approach, flexing and setting off bursts of light that stimulate the protocells and trigger chains of motion that ripple throughout the environment. Scent-emitting glands attract viewers and encourage interaction with the system, providing stimulus that increases air circulation and protocell formation.”

Radiant Soil is presented as part of the ALIVE / EN VIE exhibition at Espace EDF Fondation from April 25 – September 1, 2013. Interview with Philip Beesley, Canadian Cultural Centre
