Instilling Art Visions into the Science of Collecting Water from Fog
The Mist Collection project developed in collaboration with scientists from Ecole Polytechnique in Paris is an example of art&science collaboration driven by a desire to contribute to innovative solutions that can improve living conditions. In our project instead of delegating perception to knowledgeable entities, the public is emotionally entangled with the space emanating from the artwork and the ethic reflection on the preciousness of water in life.
