Terrena Growth Experiments and Prototypes

Though the [R]ed[U]x Lab has been recovering from the excitement of the Lithoform and Flux projects in the month of February, the teams cannot forget their other roster of projects including the upcoming Terrena piece exhibited at the Gladstone Hotel's Grow Op 2016.

The Terrena Team has been busy experimenting with geo-, hydro-, and phototropism to find the optimal methods of growing the vegetation while ensuring the roots create the desired effect. At the same time, the team is wrestling with fabricating ways to effectively"float" the terrain off the floor for visitors to view this intricate proposal from all sides.

As the winter draws to an end, so too does the Lithoform Winter Station by [R]ed[U]x Lab's team led by Aris, Remi, and Teresa. Though an entirely new set of challenges beset this team, they were able to assemble a great project that received attention from local and international sites alike.
