KATI ROOVER

To Become a ... Breath is a project about near future. It started from the thought of how to vegetalize our all-too-human sensorium (Myers 2014) and involve ourselves with plants in an effort to reconstitute a planet fit for "collaborative survival" (Anna Tsing).

 

There is a growing need to change the energy and food production. This project speculates about the possibility of  becoming a hybrid of human and plant. The video follows the slow change and the emotional process of becoming a hybrid being - human with plant like cells, modified DNA and photosythetizing skin and expanded sensorial experience that connects the human body back to the planetary environments and collective ecosystem.
