05.12.21 ELIOOO Workshop in the Take Action Section of the Human Rights Film Festival.

SUNDAY 05.12 BETWEEN 15.00-16.00 IN KOSMOS, ZURICH, I WILL HOLD A WORKSHOP WITH MY HYDROPONIC PROJECT AND BOOK ELIOOO FOR THE "TAKE ACTION" SECTION OF THE HUMAN RIGHTS FILM FESTIVAL.

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED, OR IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE WHO IS, HERE IS THE LINK WHERE TO SUBSCRIBE. THERE IS A LIMITED AMOUNT OF PLACES AVAILABLE, AND SUBSCRIPTIONS ARE OPEN UNTIL SUNDAY 28.11.

ELIOOO IS A SYSTEM I HAVE DESIGNED TO ACTIVATE INEXPENSIVE IKEA PRODUCTS AND GROW FOOD WITHOUT SOIL. BUT THE IDEA IS TO "HACK" THE IKEA INFRASTRUCTURE AND TRANSFORM IT INTO THE DISTRIBUTOR OF A PRODUCT THAT DOES NOT EXIST UNLESS YOU WANT TO MAKE IT.

THE PROJECT HAS BEEN EXHIBITED THIS SUMMER AT THE BIENNALE FOR CHANGE MAK IN VIENNA AND THE INSTALLATION IS NOW PART OF THE PERMANENT COLLECTION OF THE MUSEUM.













ELIOOO IS AN INTUITIVE SYSTEM IN WHICH I GROW BASIL AND OTHER VEGETABLES YEAR-ROUND IN MY ATELIER. I LIKE HYDROPONICS NON ONLY BECAUSE IT SAVES UP TO 90% OF LESS WATER OTHERWISE USED IN URBAN AGRICULTURE AND BECAUSE IT IS POSSIBLE TO GROW FOOD ANYWHERE, INCLUDING A SPACESHIP OR, SIMPLY, YOUR ATELIER.


HYDROPONICS IS PARTICULARLY EFFICIENT FOR URBAN FARMING AS IT PREVENTS THE EXPOSURE OF THE CITY'S POLLUTED AIR. ON TOP OF THAT, YOU CAN USE HOMOEOPATHIC DOSED OF YOUR URINES AS FERTILIZER, A SYSTEM THAT I HAVE DEVELOPED CALLED HUMANPONICS.
