Teresa van Dongen’s Aireal project is an artist in residency at Transnatural as part of The Unknown Mine Zone program. Aireal is a material library with (raw) CO2-fixed raw materials that have been collected from international initiatives and research groups. A network has been set up with interesting research groups and initiatives that deal with the capture and conversion of CO2. .
In the second phase Teresa works on an artistic form research in which she uses the collected raw materials and raw materials in which greenhouse gases are fixed or captured, creating a large sculptural work or several small sculptures. In the third phase, van Dongen creates a food experience in which a CO2-containing menu come to the fore as the prime focus.
