    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. Its form mimics an adaptable transparent skin whichs protects the center of a body - rescue blanket - 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.

    This work is composed of a series of photos documenting how the parasite adapts to several topographic an geographic areas, including Iceland and Upper Austria.

    “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.
    Locating the parasite in different environments displays often a reflection about the artificial an the natural.
    The project also refers to the isolated geographic situation of Iceland, it’s assets and vast landscapes.
