Year - 2014


For my Sustainability Initiative Micro Grant I proposed to construct an interactive living wall that connected design elements with agriculture with the urban environment of MassArt. I titled my project Edge-Effect after the permaculture term. I was inspired by the term for the meeting of ecosystems, and conceptualized it into a multi-tasking form. Together with my team we build a form to grow plants, used as many repurposed materials as possible, and created an environment that engages and fuels the viewer.
