The Shape of Things to Come is an immersive art installation that uses air quality data on a given territory in an interactive way. It invites the public to enter an arch made of recycled plastic and discover the invisible: the impact of humans on the atmosphere. By transforming the quality of the air into the quality of light, it shows this environmental issue in an interactive, but also dreamlike and poetic way.
Following the principles of biomimicry, its shape and design are inspired by the architecture of garden birds' nests. In the same way that these birds collect what they find in nature to make their habitat, it is made of recycled plastic, in a process of transforming waste into artistic material.
Her interactive device inspired by kinetic art reveals the traces left by some of our polluting activity on the planet. Against the collapsologist's discourse, she proposes a "repairing" perspective, materialized by a potential nest and by the promise of an eco-responsible use of our planet's resources.
Initially inert, the installation reveals its interactive principle when the spectator enters the threshold. As they move forward, the spectators trigger successive baths of light. Their intensity and the quality of the chromatic transitions both sublimate the material and tell the story of the variations in air quality on a city scale.
