CHANNELING WASTE, 2018.

for SOLUTIONS SPACE by HUMANS OF TOMORROW . IN COLLABORATION WITH AYAL ROSENBERG.





This installation was designed for the The Solutions Space that was conceived by the Humans of Tomorrow collective, in collaboration with the Coal and Ice documentary photography exhibit at the Fort Mason in San Francisco, September 2018.

Sewage, or sludge, has the potential to be transformed into useful by-products. Channeling Waste is an interactive sculpture that demonstrates how every flush can be turned into electrical power, fuel for transportation, or fertilizer for agriculture. The technology for biodigesters is being applied at different scales around the world, creating a circular system to create value out of what was previously a big problem.

Visitors flush toilet handles on a large waste barrel that trigger projected animations and sound. The unexpected outcomes of electricity, biofuel, and fertilizer contrast with the expectations of biological waste.
