A Chair for Co-responding

Bon Kim (KR)

Body heat, evidence of life activity, is perceived through constant giving and receiving within one’s surroundings. The installation attempts to form a relationship between participating plants and the audience through human body heat. By sitting on the chair, energy is converted from body heat to electricity. The electricity powers a light which amplifies photosynthesis, causing the plants to generate more oxygen that is again circulated to the audience in the same time and space.
