R&D

. . in Houston, opening Fri., Jan. 5, includes some of my favorite artists, such as Eyebeam R & D/ Jonah Peretti & Michael Frumin, Harrell Fletcher, Guthrie Lonergan, Jill Magid, and Trevor Paglen.

 

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.

Greens growing in a suspended hydroponic Window Farm

We are creating several different designs for suspended, hydroponic, modular, low-energy, high-yield light-augmented window farms using low-impact or recycled local materials. These prototype window farms, to be located in high-profile windows throughout the city, are intended to inspire other New Yorkers to design and implement their own window farms. Signs in the windowfarms will challenge New Yorker to create their own and direct them to a website where we can all share photos, plans, designs, and information. Together, we will derive viable methods for growing food under the local conditions of our own homes in a way that is efficient enough for New Yorkers' lives.
