Gulf Oil Gas Station - Installation Art
AirStation is a temporary installation created in a 1930's Art Deco Gas Station directly across the road from the Station Museum in Houston, Texas. It is a reflection to a world of ever increasing air pollution, ozone action days, water shortages, droughts and oil spills.
Conceptually, it's a self-contained, self-sustaining bio-environment; a
one-room emergency AirStation supplied air as a greenhouse air station,
creating a simple biosphere exchange system similar to that of Planet
Earth. The Installation of the garden biosphere inside the old gas station is a form of remediation of our environments industrially contaminated soil ,water and air.
AirPlane1, awarded first place in the Houston Art Car Parade will be part of the installation, and EarthMan 2 will be publicly performing for the first time. All 3 elements of this performance and installation blend art and science and relate to bioregenerative life support systems, self-sustaining systems conceptually capable of maintaining a human in otherwise unlivable environments on our increasingly polluted earth or even in outer space.
