These are depictions of a systems diagram that the Biospherians created, iterated, and used [in numerous ways] to design and communicate Biosphere 2 [B2]. I'm interested in expanding its readings, and possible Biospherian 'mis-readings,' [their visual systems semiotics were partially derived from Ecosystems Theory 'Emergese' language, but they simultaneoously adapted it into a visual 'slang' of sorts]. Also interested in how this diagram gets translated/materialized into synthetic ecologies within a building/apparatus, and finally, its implications for living within the 'Human Experiment' as component of the diagram.
