B9_#093 // SUBSTATION // CHRISTOPHER DELAHUNT
The substerrarium presents step-down electricity transformers within a glass wardian case. The wardian case was an early type of sealed container for plants. As a whimsical play on words I have reimagined the `plant` that occupies our city within a sealed ornamental glass container. The electrical synapses of a metropolitan nervous system are showcased and displayed as a compliment to the surrounding landscape, rather than being hidden away in an unsuspecting box, or on the roof of a building. So what are you waiting for, go visit the plant at your local substerrarium and learn more about the electrical flora providing power to our cities and homes.
