Ecostasis 2014

Can the dwelling structures we build turn soil into ecosystems while we live with them.

Human Metabolism and Effort are part of an energy chain, which we fight to keep in homeostasis. Can homeostasis and ecostasis co-exist. If we introduce a structure in between the sky and ground, what we capture must eventually make it back to the ground, in a way that is meaningful for lower trophic system to support us. In laymans terms if we catch all the rain and move it, the tomatoes can grow near the catchment, a re-distribution of materials.
