How can responsive design bring awareness to many floral species exinction threat?

« Hide-and-seek with the missing » is a flooring design aiming at bring awareness and inform the population on the importance of the management and the preservation of nature.

Inspired by the “floristic list for the threatened species”in Wallonia, “Hide-and-seek with the missing” is a poetic way of protecting our biodivesity.
Illustrations of threatened species appear and disappear on the floor, reacting to sunlight, just like and hide-and- seek with the plants.

The association which has established that list is convinced that information should be a priority.
So the conception of a project communicating that list, like and “Hide-and-seek with the missing”, ais contributing to nature conservation.

It is a photochromic screen-print composition on wooden-floor. The tones print which appears to match with the floor in the shadow will reveal a vivid color palette when exposed to UV light, as, for example, through a window when the sun is shining.

As flowers react to their environment, the projects shows the parallel between the effective disappearance of the species, and the metaphoric disapperance of the plants in the shadow.
