If I had all the money in the world… [Fragile Future]

fragile-future

…I would be happy spend it on Design Drift’s ‘Fragile Future’ lightsculpture.

“Fragile Future is about the amalgamation of nature and technology.
In the distant future these two extremes have made a pact to survive. Fragile Future combines an electronical systems with real dandelions in a lightsculpture that is predestined to overgrows a surfase. Electronics are driven by the natural survival instincts.The fragile installation protects itself by pretending to be out of order when someone comes too close (optional). This is the same mechanism as a poppy that drops its petal when you pick it, or a ladybird that acts as dead in your hand when caught.”

Doesn’t this look like it’s straight out of a magical fairy tale?
