Nomadic Plant by Gilberto EsparzaSinaloa Science Center

Gilberto Esparza's work focuses on the use of electronic and robotic means to investigate the impacts of technology on daily life, social relations, the environment, and urban structure. Their work is carried out in collaboration with biologists, botanists, and other scientists, resulting in devices and proposals that dilute the border between science and art

Nomadic Plants

They are a hybrid between plant and machine dedicated to storing and converting contaminated water into energy while improving water quality. They are designed to be released and go through areas of ecological disaster. In the future, will we have to build machines that recycle garbage, purify water, and purify the air?
