Pachamama / 2020 - Luiza Prado
Sculpture using the bio-construction technique (COB)
Pachamama is a micro ecosystem experiment created in a heart carved out of clay with principles of bioconstruction. An internal pipe was established with roots and herbs that allow a long drainage. In the sculpture, pests, vines, fungi such as witch butter and flowers like white lily were planted in different parts of the sculpture (far and near irrigation). Almost dry plants were also applied, as well as live plants with roots.
The experiment was left between a plantation of extremely humid soil (part of the pipe next to rain and river water fall, and the other side on dry cement soil.
Pachamama is a heart in the center of the world that pulsates and irrigates a diversity that asks: What do nature and good come from?
