Artist Statement:


    Transpotage – a Moveable and Translucent Garden is the second phase of an ongoing laboratory project which borrows new technologies from other disciplines and transfers them into the sphere of architecture. The first phase, at the Venice Architecture Biennale (2012), explored the lightness of the substrate and movement; here the focus is again on these two issues. The lightness of the substrate is taken to an extreme by making it translucent; meanwhile movement, although simplified to one direction, is also made more perceptible, as the translucency of the substrate reveals the trace of its effect on growing roots.
    Selgascano are working on this project with the Spanish National Centre for Biotechnology (CNB)  and the Plant Genetic Engineering Laboratory (PGEL), the University of Queensland, and biologists Antonio Leyva, Carlos Alonso and Jimmy Botella.
