Workshop: Aquaponics

Learn to build Aquaponics

Aquaponics is a sustainable food production system that combines the cultivation of vegetables and fish. It is one of the best ways to produce food in the city, because it hardly takes up any space. The fish excrement feeds the plants, and the plants clean the water for the fish. In this way, not...

Discuss your work, ideas and obstacles with the artist

Workshop: Biomimicry

  • Resonating spaces - 

    Through the study of the analogy between forms and patterns of sound and of nature, we are conducting experiments concerning a different mechanical way to stimulate matter. Through the study of models in nature, prototypes of integrative, self-assembling, self- organizing architectonic structures are created. A 3D- printer is hacked to host this system and extrude agar based or bio plastic structures as a bone system.

    The project originates in and will contribute to the field of architecture and design. The planned experiments combine the latest scientific breakthroughs in the fields of bio-tech and 3d-printing.

  • Looking at The Art of Deception - 

    A visitor of the exhibition Art of Deception takes a closer look at one of the 18 transformed pigs hearts. Each heart is first decellularized after which the artist was left with a so called 'ghost organ'. The hearts were then used as blanc canvases for future inner body beautifications.
