The evolution of product processes has brought about a generation of products that are less constructible.
These objects arrive in the homes as alien spaceships, in which we do not know anything of,
and what we are able to learn about them is what they want us to learn.
Excluding the interface, these objects reveal themselves to a minimum.
Which is the best way to learn about an object, to feel it? Surely to construct it.
There is no greater form of intimacy for an object than to be created.
Terra! is not a finished product, it is an idea;
we provide the cardboard frame and the seeds and the main ingredient,
the dirt, can be found everywhere on our planet.
The armchair is born in your garden and becomes part of your landscape.
Terra! is not only a grass arm-chair, it is an arm-chair of the world;
if you are in a desolate suburb surrounded with cement,
make it out of cement, if you live in front of an American highway,
make it out of asphalt, if you are in the north pole use the snow….
