Drip I
2010









Drip juxtaposes the organic and the inorganic as upward an downward flows in time, triggered by atmosphere and gravity in 2.5x2.5m vertical garden. Drip consists in a large volume of salt held 3m above a planter.
9 cables stretch in between. As water drips over the plante through special orifices, salt crystallizes downward formin 9 stalactites over the planter. Creeper plants grow upward from the planter. Stalactites and
plants bond together in time. Drip keeps transforming unde the refracted light of the suspended salt-volume. It works like an urban hourglass, changing in time, physically and locally respondin to a global phenomenon, aiming to redefine climate change as a hybrid, transitory stage also known as “Salt of the Earth.”
