Jungle fruits



The idea is to create some fancy tropical plants out of recycling materials (like plant parasites in the jungle)
hang them on top of a big tree or several trees and light them up at night.

Full description of concept

When one organism steals all of its food from another organism's body it is called a parasite. The host (organism who is being robbed) is forced to supply the parasite with nutritions, willingly or unwillingly. The parasitic mode of existence can be found throughout the kingdoms of life, from bacteria and fungi to insects but also in human coexistence. Mostly it is negatively associated to the destruction of the main organism.
Tropical regions and jungles show a different image of parasitism. What happens if we focus on the parasite's beauty and contribution to life?
Whoever is familiar with the tale of Nausicäa knows that the toxic jungle has saved the planet at the end..

Team and plan

Shlomit & Liora Avishai (will build up the installation in a studio and organize transportation)
Fabienne Meyer and Corinne Germann advise us from Switzerland & assist the construction and maintenance @ the burnerot

Moop plan (matter out of place)

the installation will be brought back to Tel Aviv and will be used in a different context.
As we are already using recycling materials, we absolutely want to avoid creating moop. Of course we'l bring trash bags to the spots and collect all the little shizzle around.

Recycling plan

the whole installation is made out of recycling materials, such as plastic bottles, cans, old cables, plastic bags etc.
We'll use tree protection placing it.
the installation will be brought back to Tel Aviv and will be used in a different context.
