Inspired by the writings of Donna J. Haraway, Ursula K. Le Guin and Greg Egan, this work plunges us into a speculative future where samples of an extinct plant species are preserved and displayed in a virtual archive room. Floralia is a simulation of ecosystems born from the fusion of technology and organic matter, where past and future coexist in the perpetual tension of the present.
