Tillandsia Aeranthos -or Air Carnation- is a plant that does not require a substrate to develop. It feeds on the air and indirect light, therefore its roots only serve to bind to other elements that can provide support. Airpolis is an environment designed for the development of one hundred and sixty Air Carnations, offering them a habitat materialized by a set of slender filaments that, when crossing a translucent disc, manage to configure the support for the development of these plants. The figure of a dome is reconstructed with these plants carefully isolated in the air. The complementarity between support and vegetation transcends biological aspects to address a transfer of aesthetic arguments that attempts to dilute the limits of both categories.
