together with Michael Zinganel

In the installation Buckminster Fuller's serially-produced geodesic domes, which gained world fame through the Expo 67 in Montreal, are reproduced based on a DIY blueprint for children's tents. Developed before the energy crisis of the 1970s, the domes were often used as DIY glasshouses, as climate covers for biotopes and communes, but also as dwellings of research stations and expeditions to the fringes of our civilization or even beyond the borders of our planet. In the face of climate change, this positivist ambition appears in a different light today: the planet is about to loose its shell which is suggested here in a separation of support structure and shell (Bodies and Skin).
