Mars Mariana
Project developed for Symbiotic Machines for Space Exploration, with the starting point of a field-research in the city of Mariana where an environmental accident from a mining company took place, intoxicated 600 km of river and land in Minas Gerais (BR). Mars Mariana explores the relationships between Martian x Terrestrial landscape investigating the atmosphere for the development of terrestrial life on Mars and regeneration of life in Mariana City.

Interactive floating kinetic sculpture. While participants ride the Waterbike, it generates sufficient energy to pump the water to be purified by a hydraulic system composed with living bacteria. These bacteria are fed on the organic materials found in water, that are one of the leading causes of water pollution.
