Inhabitat points us to an interesting exhibit that just wrapped up at Oakland’s Swarm Gallery. Vaughn Bell and Josh Keyes created a variety of work that examined humanity’s relationship with the natural world. Vaughn Bell’s work especially stood out – the Seattle based artist created a series of Personal Biospheres that visitors could stick their head into to get a quick hit of nature on demand. These one person greenhouses contained a small scale natural environment contained inside clear boxes suspended from the ceiling. Bell also made tiny Pocket Biospheres that could be taken home for further exploration.
