Okra, tomatoes, lettuces, beans, pepper, kale, peas, cucumbers, arugula, and basil are growing in the Window Farm on display in Eyebeam's window gallery. The hydroponic system includes a pump in a reservoir on the floor which pushes water and nutrients to the pipe at the top. The nutrient solution then drips through the columns of plants which are resting in suspended recycled water bottles. Low energy bulbs supplement natural light. This Window Farm was built using low-cost, easily accessible materials. It represents one in a series of designs for low-energy, high-yield DIY hydroponic vertical farms that are suited to small New York city spaces. windowfarms.org.

The Urine to Fertilizer Kits were on display at the Museum of Modern art as part of their exhibition for Earth Day. Other works in the show included Isabella Rossellini's fabulous Green Porno series, Superflex's Flooded McDonald's, and Michel de Broin's Pedal-powered Buick.

 

On Monday, April 6th, at 7:00 Britta and Rebecca had a show at Terence Koh's gallery space (Asia Song Society or ASS) as the first installment in their new programming series, Expel. They created fertilizer from participants' urine over the course of the evening. The event was the latest in a series of workshops that get people intimately involved in their waste cycle.

You drink beer. Then, pee in a cup. We'll turn it into fertilizer while you dance and socialize. At the end of the evening, we will scoop some fertilizer back into your cup and you can take it home to fertilize your plants.
