Biosphere 2 Sixteen Years Later

April 7, 2010

We came across this story on motherboard.tv…Very cool story. The photos are below…

We just loved the eerie feel and sad realistic state of a utopian fantasy sold on the language of science.

Built in just under four years and completed in 1991, Biosphere 2 was intended to study five areas of the natural biomes, their agricultural area, and to observe our living/working space. Specifically how we interact with each other under such confined circumstances.

Unfortunately the research was never completed.

Biosphere 2 was an ambitious project to create a self-sustaining gigantic sealed structure where people can live indefinitely. It ended up as a failure in many ways. Sixteen years after the last inhabitants left, Brooklyn Based photographer Noah Sheldon captured the current state with a series of eerie and captivating photos.
