VIENNA DESIGN WEEK / CIRCULAR FLOWS

EOOS Design introduces the revolutionary principle of the Save! toilet with urine trap. The nitrogen contained in human urine is prevented from entering natural waterways and can be reclaimed at little expense for use as a valuable resource.
This item in the Sustainable Design category at the Laufen Innovation Hub is juxtaposed with two artworks from the field of BioArt: Mary Maggic's video "Housewives Making Drugs" shows how molecules are extracted from ground water for private hormone therapy, and Lucie Strecker's fairground attraction and live performance "Brains' Shit for Shit Brains" speculates on the importance of microbial diversity in sociopolitical contexts.
 

#DESIGN TAKES ON HUMAN SURVIVAL
The relationship between the production of nature and art in the age of Technoscience: How do artists encounter with the obvious fact that mankind is turning the world in the age of the Anthropocene into a large experimental laboratory with an uncertain outcome? 
Ingeborg Reichle, University of Applied Arts, Media Theory

« HOUSEWIVES MAKING DRUGS »
« MOLECULAR QUEERING AGENCY »

Molecular Queering Agency - A fictional agency that guides viewers towards the process of "queering" showing how malleable and unfixed our bodies actually are, especially in a world where toxicity and mutation are inescapable.

Housewives Making Drugs - A cooking show where transwomen share a DIY estrogen recipe where the hormones are extracted and recycled form urine.

« BRAINS` SHIT FOR SHIT BRAINS »
In a fairground attraction and live performance called "Brains' Shit for Shit Brains", Lucie Strecker speculates on the importance of microbial diversity in sociopolitical contexts and addresses the still taboo topic of faeces.
