    This work is composed of a series of photos of a rescue blanket locked inside a transparent capsule like a parasite. The series of photos shows how the parasite adapts to different topographic areas. The intention is to document how it behaves in other environments initially include Iceland and Upper Austria. However, the artist, through the parasite, plans to explore other locations.
    The project also refers to the isolated geographic situation of Iceland, it’s assets and vast landscapes.

    “The parasite in a capsule“ involves diverse references:
    It poses the question about the architectural models built to sustain climate change like capsules.
    It also represents the idea of how human beings adapt and modify their surroundings, sometimes in a drastic manner
    When the parasite is placed in different environments
    a reflection about what is artificial or natural
    Given the effectiveness of survival due to the range of scenarios where it can evolve, the undeniable autonomy of a parasite over and beyond space

    Metaphorically, the parasite questions and points to architectural approaches like climate capsules or bubbles seen as an alternative hint to the evolution of climate change.
