My goal is to enhance the connection between humans and plants through immersive experience design using different media, and to inspire behavior change through empathy and love. Plants are essential to maintaining life on earth. They are sensitive, complex, and interconnected organisms that play a vital role in ecosystems and human societies. I am fascinated by the emotions associated with plants and the relationship between humans and plants. However, the tension between humans and nature has intensified due to anthropocentrism. Therefore, I plan to alleviate this tension using the concept of symbiosis.
It was a pollinator rescue project, I planned a moving resting place for pollinators in the city, I designed a jacket to hold a lot of flowers and I wore it walking through the crowds, in the streets, and in the stations. I tried to get the attention of pedestrians through this parade about love.
