Archive Éthérée

“Archive Éthérée” highlights a inconspicious element of our Parisian environment: mosses, and their bioindicating qualities. Through their ability to retain polluting particles, those bryophytes collect the traces left by its surrounding atmosphere, giving us data regarding its pollution rate. Conceived as a memory of the air, this installation engages a valorization of those living organisms in urban areas. By combining the craftsmanship value of embroidery with mosses’ attributes, it propounds a new place for these plants in our living environments.

With the support of Bryoflor and the National Museum of Natural
