Belgian Artist Cocoons Himself in Covid-Free Bubble

At the point when governments around Europe advised individuals to make a “bubble” to restrict their social contacts during the COVID-19 pandemic, this was presumably not what they had as a main priority.

Alain Verschueren, a Belgian craftsman and social worker, has been walking around the capital Brussels wearing a “portable oasis” – a plexiglass smaller than expected nursery which lays on his shoulders, casings him in an air pocket of air refined by the fragrant plants inside.

Verschueren, 61, built up the thought 15 years prior, enlivened by the rich desert gardens in Tunisia where he had recently worked. In a city where face covers are required to check the spread of COVID-19, his creation has acquired another rent of life.

“It was about creating a bubble in which I could lock myself in, to cut myself off a world that I found too dull, too noisy or smelly,” Verschueren said, adding that he has asthma and discovers breathing inside his contraption more agreeable than wearing a facemask.

Alain Verschueren, a Belgian craftsman and social specialist, has been walking around the capital Brussels wearing a “versatile desert garden” – a plexiglass small nursery which lays on his shoulders, casings him in an air pocket of air cleaned by the sweet-smelling plants inside.

Verschueren, 61, built up the thought 15 years prior, motivated by the lavish desert springs in Tunisia where he had recently worked. In a city where face covers are compulsory to check the spread of COVID-19, his creation has acquired another rent of life.

“Is it a greenhouse? Is it for the bees? Is it for the plants? We don’t know, but it’s a good idea,” Charlie Elkiess, a retired jeweler

Verschueren said he would have liked to urge individuals to care more for the climate, to lessen the need to shield ourselves from air and commotion contamination.
