Transplant is a work that slips living plants into a future where the climate has significantly warmed. Inside each of the 1 meter hemispherical domes is a manipulated environment that represents a potential time when the mean temperature of Malmö, Sweden matches the current mean temperature of one of it’s warmer Sister Cities. Within each microclimate native Swedish plants will sprout, grow and die as the chamber approximates imagined future temperatures, moisture levels, and other environmental conditions changed by global warming.
The environments contained within the domes represents the year 2056 (+2.5 °C), 2110 (+5.8 °C), and 2180 (+10.2 °C)
The project is a collaboration with Wes Heiss and Ryan Hickey and is on display as part of the Agrikultura exhibition in Malmo, Sweden in the summer of 2017.
