AZUMA MOKOTO: BONSAI IN SPACE

The artist Azuma Mokoto, who currently lives in Tokyo, has created the first botanical space flight, in collaboration with John Powell of JP Aerospace. The objective of this artwork was to send a Japanese white pine bonsai and an arrangement of orchids suspended from a frame of carbon fiber. The package was released with a special group of balloons from the Nevada desert. The project, entitled Exbiotica presents images taken at 30,000 meters and a temperature of -50° F. Everything was documented by 6 cameras GoPr, or were tied to a special balloon to record the 360​º view. The approach of these artists is that on Earth, gravity keeps the roots of plants on Earth, while in space, plants can go free into the Sun.
