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.

Drink.Pee.Drink.Pee.Drink.Pee looks at the very personal environmental issues caused by flushing our pee down the toilet: harmful algae blooms in aquatic ecosystems and pee-derived pharmaceuticals in our drinking water.

On Monday, April 6th, at 7:00 we've got a show at Terence Koh's gallery space (Asia Song Society or ASS) as the first installment in their new programming series, Expel.

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.

Asia Song Society

45 Canal St, between Orchard and Ludlow.

Monday, April 6th, 7-9pm.

This is part of the Drink.Pee.Drink.Pee.Drink.Pee project, along with the installation and Urine to Fertilizer DIY Kit we created here at Eyebeam in March of 2008.
