During the month of September, the city of Copenhagen is hosting Hot Summer of Urban Farming — eight temporary art installations that explore the use (and disuse) of urban spaces. The Oxygen Greenhouse, by Hartmut Stockter, generates fresh air for the O2-starved urbanite. The greenhouse has a tube and a breathing mask attached for the passer by who needs a hit of the pure stuff.
Hartmut Stockter created this piece as a scaled-up stationary replica of his plant backpack, a strap-on greenhouse for street hikers who want to carry their plant life around. If you paired this with a camelback, you’d have the O2, the H2O…all you’d need is a portable mini-fridge. Or an urban forager’s map.
