Homeostasis is a collective experience where users interact with the environment shown on the big screens with their phones by following the movement of the three conductors at the front of the stage. Their actions and in-actions lead to visible impact in the environment shown in front of them and the audience witnesses the environmental impacts that their actions have on the planet. The project signifies the failures of people's actions in maintaining the homeostasis of the planet and the impending consequences.
