Stomata





Stomata is named after the Greek word for "mouth" which is also used to describe pores found in the epidermis of botanical organisms that control gas exchange. A metaphor where changing apertures respond to the proximity of human interactions in a similar manner to how stomata pores respond to oxygen and carbon dioxide levels. Within voids created by the undulating surface, two "lungs" inflate and deflate to mimic the human respiration system. Effectively addressing visual and tactile senses, air blows through individual pods sporadically placed in the lattice-work.



















Stomata is an interactive installation that responds to the engagement of the public through their proximity and senses.
