29-06-2012 De Diesel Kantine

At the opening of De Etende Mens (2012) in the Designhuis in Eindhoven, João Negro processes old deep-frying fat (local fat) into soap and biodiesel. The soap is perfumed with herbs from the aquaponics culture. You wash your hands with it before eating and cooking and after defecating. The biodiesel is used to heat the kitchen where we make snacks from home-grown aquaponics fish and home-grown aquaponics vegetables. It is an eatery that runs in cycle with the neighborhood. The energy comes from the neighborhood, the ingredients come from the neighborhood and it feeds, washes and entertains the neighborhood.
