Moss Mobile

Moss Mobile is a kinetic nature installation for a shadowy area. A selection of pleurocarpous and acrocarpous mosses grow on fabric that is tensioned over a lightweight steel frame.

The Mobile can be suspended between existing structures such as buildings. The spiral is connected to the suspension cables through a bearing system so its free to spin with wind. The Mobile gets irrigation from a drip tube that is connected to the roof drainage of an adjacent building. Excess water is taken back to the the drainage system by another small hose. Since moss does not need soil, it is a perfect fit for a lightweight, suspended installation.

The Moss Mobile brings an interesting green element to areas where other types of vegetation are not feasible for example due to lighting conditions.
