Glass aquarium, Water, Sodium Chloride, Calcium Hydroxide, Dyes.

From a series of experiments where I replicated various aspects of earth’s atmosphere, such as density interactions, jet streams, electromagnetic forcing and the rotation of the earth on its axis.  The aquariums included stratified fluid systems with different densities, which replicated atmospheric layers. Dye was used to make these interactions visible. These experiments resulted in a concept that was developed at a healing environment outpatient clinic at the VU Medical Center in Amsterdam, NL.


Model sketches for installation at the VU outpatient center developed in collaboration with Jörg Petri.
