Studio DRIFT is currently exhibiting one of their installations at the Israel Museum [1] as part of the Curious Minds Exhibit [2]. Fragile Future III [3] “tells the story about the amalgamation of nature and technology,” and how the two must work in consort in order to survive. The linear, 3 dimensional network is both industrial and organic and while the unit is wholly constructed it speaks to how nature can collaborate with man-made objects.

This third iteration in the series (after Fragile Future I and II) is a more robust design and is easier to install and maintain. Each modular network is a visible circuit and comes with three lights made from real dandelions. The modules easily connect to each other allowing a number of different configurations to be made. You can order your own versions of the lights through Carpenter’s Workshop Gallery [4].
