Spanish artist Ainhoa Garmendia has designed a “living” hammock woven with soil-less plants as she calls on the contemporary consumers to depart from a rampant throw-away culture and embrace something lasting and animate.

The installation, entitled Naturalize, borrows its name from a verb, an action and a process whereby objects stay alive and continue to grow as opposed to the short-life items that get discarded, writes Inhabitat.

Ainhoa Garmendia’s hammock, crafted from a Spanish moss that needs little water and no soil to grow, embodies the idea of reconnecting with nature while manifesting how sustainability and eco-awareness can find their way in routine life.
