City Office Dominated By Nature
Research has shown that people in hospital and care homes recover faster in a green enviroment. Even a poster with greenery landscape will work. Office employees will finish their tasks more efficiently and faster as well when offered a open green view. Then why don’t we bring some nature into our workspaces?
An ordinary house plant in a fancy pot will not be accepted, just let it grow! We want our office to be nature, with singing birds and lady bugs on our side! At least, that’s what Tres Bird Workshop, the artists behind this installation, entitled Natural Systems Domination, recommended…
“Domination implies taking over. If we had it our way, natural systems would dominate entirely. Natural systems operate in perfect efficiency. Humans are both part of those natural systems and also somehow separate (by choice). The further we stray from connections with nature, the more alien we become. Tres Birds Workshop was commissioned to concept, design and build an art installation in Downtown Denver for the purpose of encouraging people out of their offices for daily fresh air breaks. We highly recommend it. The installation made up of part vintage office furniture and part 100% live vegetation reminds us not to let office overgrowth affect a healthy relationship with the outdoors. All of the vegetation used in the installation were reused + recycled afterward.”
