funky forest

I am a tree and I need water! Dance with me! Guide the river!

Together with designer Emily Gobeille, Theodore Watson created the Funky Forest, an interactive ecosystem where people can grow their own tree with their bodies by posing in front of a huge canvas. The trees are watered by guiding a projected river on the floor.
"The health of the trees contributes to the overall health of the forest and the types of creatures that inhabit it."

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
