Living in symbiosis with micro-organisms.

This project addresses the conception of a new type of wearable technology focused on air pollution remediation, utilizing a living system to sequester carbon. By integrating the intimate space of humans, this symbiotic relationship with a living microorganism relies on mutual benefits between species.

What if the carbon dioxide released by humans could be harnessed to support algal growth, rather than being directly released into the environment? And in return, what if these microalgae could ensure oxygen production, essential for human respiration? This research bridges social, bioengineering, design, biology, ecology, and ethics.
