Living in symbiosis with micro-organisms.

This project addresses the conception of a new type of wearable focused on air pollution remediation, using a living system to sequester carbon. By integrating the intimate space of Human, this relationship with a living micro-organism relies on mutual benefits between species.

​What if the release of carbon dioxide emitted by humans could be put at the service of algal growth, rather than being directly released into the environment? What if this micro algae, in return, could guarantee the oxygen production, essential for human breath?

A research between social, bioengineering, design, biology, ecology and ethic.
