Art Installation
Art Basel 2019

Plantae Dialogue was part of DIMENSIONS during Art Basel 2019. DIMENSIONS took over a 3 - floor 50,000+ square foot department store, which is an old landmark of Downtown Miami. The department store was transformed into a multi-sensory art space with different interactive installation experiences.

Plantae Dialogue celebrates plants through an immersive installation with colors, all recycled materials, sources of light, glass, illustrations and photographs as primary mediums. The installation unfolds a sequence of different scenarios of the human relationship with plants, themselves, and sustainability. 

The installation manifests concerns for the environment and encourages the masses to take care of our mother earth. By recycling, reusing, and reducing people take care of the planet which translates into taking care of themselves.

The main porpuse of this work is to raise awareness and be a remainder of how much beauty we can find in our world, and how it easily goes unnoticed on a daily basis. The installation is divided in 4 phases: Perceiving - Feeling - Reflecting - Creating.

Plastic Garden

60 recycled plastic bottles were curated with layers of colors. The plastic bottles are used as plant vases and placed on the floor creating a grid-like garden. A wide range of tropical plants were selected for the vases. Through this plastic garden, viewers were exposed to the plants as a main focus: as artistic, natural elements that inspire all senses and creative artistic process, with the opportunity to interact and connect with the plants in a variety of sensory ways.  

The consumption of plastic is a reality known for being excessive and abusive to our planet. People should be constantly looking for alternative options to help decrease this problem. Through this installation it is shown creative ways to reuse plastic.

Mute the Noise

The second phase of the installation is based on 12 customed design video & sound pieces of 10 seconds each, projected in the mute the noise room. This photo collection of plants is showcased after 2 years of documentation. The photos are paired with specific sound effects based on calm scenarios. For example: the sound of waves from Morrocoy, Venezuela.

Comes and Goes

The third stage is represented by light and reflection, which emphasizes in "what comes around, goes around". This piece is made with an old rotating discontructed fan, 3 old buckets, broken glasses and mirrors and glitter.

Ave de Mi Paraíso

For the last phase, a combination of nature's perception, emotions, and memories are apply into this piece, which is based on a self reflective consciousness.

The structure is created with multiple viewing perspectives for the viewers to interpret and experience it on their own. This self reflection will be a reminder of how much natural beauty there is in the world; it will serve as a way to make people conscious of their surroundings and encourage them to be respectful of our mother earth and themselves.
