On view: Home Is Where the Plastic Eating Stomach Is

Come partake in an alternative form of plastic dispossession. Between June 29thand August 19th bring your plastic waste to Swale House, Governors Island, NYC, and it may become feed for a living sculpture that digests plastic via white rot fungi. Utilizing an open source plastomach, (plastic + stomach) design, this entity can be fed plastic waste and may help us envision a world that’s free of plastic debris.

About demaray

I kinit sweaters for plants, I culture lichen on the sides of skyscrapers in New York City and I manufacture alternative forms of housing for hermit crabs, out of plastic. With the engineer Dr. Qingze Zou, I am currently creating the IndaPlant Project: An Act of Trans-Species Giving in which I am building light-sencing robotic supports for housplants. These moving floraborgs allow potted-plants to roam freely in a domestic environment, in search of sunlight and water.
