Growth Room (2022) is an experience-installation generated by a control of technologies — grow lights, heat, humidity, and insulation from the outside environment — where it is possible to experience an idealised climate, favourable for accelerating plant growth.

Even though the room is a totally artificial place, what it produces is natural: photosynthesis, plant growth, flowering, fruit and vegetable production. The place of a greenhouse is born out of the need for mass production, a fictional place that capitalizes on time and growth. Although the room is built according to specific conditions for the growth of vegetal bodies, here the medium becomes the human body, where experience is manifested.
Can our bodies grow in this environment too?
