An installation project developed in 2002 revolving around the experience of water flowing into an enclosed environment. A Bathroom environment merging with an indoor garden for a possible present. The walls are the interface to nature. Organised but alive. The room appears like a bathscape invaded by plants and flowers. They grow between unfolding strips of Corian cladding; a consistent skin able to become. Metamorphoses of the cladding into spouts and surfaces are ready to welcome water. Water springs from the leafy walls as directly from rocks of artificial nature. Some valves could be operated to provide the vital sap necessary to maintain this vegetal kingdom at domestic scale. The scent and colour of flowers gives the sense of time and changing seasons.
