In/Out by Benjamin Schief and Judith Fassbender
Urban ecologies for personal wellbeing
Realising that urban lifestyles are stimulating increasing desire for a connection with nature, Judith Fassbender and Benjamin Schief, a design-duo working in Amsterdam and Germany, created In/Out. The installation presents an antidote to the polluted air and stress of urban life. It consists of three plant exhibits that have a symbiotic relationship with the viewer. Requiring the carbon dioxide and humidity of the viewer’s breath, the plants reciprocate by cleaning the atmosphere so that the user can breathe healthily.
