sustainable scales: in the life cycle of plants, decomposition is a natural act that transforms old life in food for growth. for example, trees shed their leaves which are then used as compost. in a garden, the seats and plants resemble each other in terms of scale, color, texture, and process.
we propose an artistic installation that uses construction discarded material and repurposes them into an ethereal seat. we put side by side the two phenomenons in order to advocate for more natural reuse of all materials after they discarded through human activity.
