Aquaponics Press Material

Footage and info

Mediamatic is exploring aquaponics as an alternative food production method in the city. Aquaponics is the cultivation of plants and fish in a sustainable, recirculating eco-system.

We have designed several aquaponics installations, which profit from all the benefits of large-scale sustainable food production, but on a human scale. The installations are featured in exhibitions, but we also organize workshops to introduce people and organizations to this system.

Feel free to use these pictures, but don't forget to include the photographer and Mediamatic in the credit line.

General info: Saro Van Cleynenbreugel. Workshops: Faye Wilkie. PR, press and partner requests can be sent to Rosalie Bak.
