Airborne is a series of suspended miniature gardens currently on exhibition in Melbourne as part of the Sustainable Living Festival and has been funded by the City of Melbourne, 2013 Arts Grant Program. Tillandsias, a genus of bromeliads has been attached to a structure made from recycled bicycle wheels and wire.

Tillandsias does not require soil, water or maintenance. The plant absorbs nutrients and moisture through the air, meaning it can be hoisted above the ground and survive. The structure will be on display until the end of the year.
