Robert Ortega's Green Screen was one of the finalists in 'Project Greenway,' conducted by Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture. 

Green Screen is made from pulp of fungal spores and filters bacteria from nasal passages. Another feature of Green Screen is that it can separate carbon-dioxide from exhalation. This feature allows the embedded seeds to germinate, form roots and later the mask can be planted directly into the soil.
