Eyebeam hosts the Cross Species (xSpecies) Adventure Club, a supper club for humans and non-humans to explore a tasty bio-diverse future. Each event is an experience of the depth and complexity of our interconnections with nonhumans, exploring the web that traces our gastronomic, economic and material interdependency with butterflies, snails, geese, bats and other intelligent and delicious creatures. This supper club will present 5 courses of foods delicious and nutritious to both humans and nonhumans, with wine, beer and edible cocktail pairing and a take-home. This on-going lifestyle experiment is created by Natalie Jeremijenko, Mihir Desai (gastronomist superstar), Emilie Baltz of Fork & Design (design oversight), and other intelligent creatures. Dinner preceded by 3PM Workshop. Seating is strictly limited.

GROW FOOD IN YOUR APARTMENT YEAR-ROUND!

RSVP by sending the number in your party to info@windowfarms.org (limit 30 people).

Windowfarms are vertical hydroponic, veggie-producing curtains made primarily of recycled materials or parts available at local hardware stores. New Yorkers can grow a portion of their own organic food year-round in their apartments and offices by building windowfarms from open source designs that keep evolving through mass collaboration at our.windowfarms.org. At the workshop, participants will:

Britta Riley’s work plays with current structures for innovation in our culture and celebrates the wisdom of ordinary people. By means of a process she calls R&D-I-Y (research and develop it yourself), she applies a pedestrian mentality to intractable global issues to surprising effect. The resultant artifacts conjure lifestyles of a future sustainable society that are startlingly within reach. She brings the proposals to the public for further innovation thereby inviting ordinary people to participate in solving big environmental problems immediately through mass collaboration. Her DrinkPeeDrinkPeeDrinkPee project, in collaboration with Rebecca Bray, helped people turn their pee into fertilizer for their houseplants through kits, events, and an installation. Her current project, Windowfarms.org, helps New Yorkers grow food in their apartments year-round by means of hydroponic window curtains.

Sharecropper invites you to participate in this public art project and micro farming installation by artist Leah Gauthier for one growing season in New York City, Summer 2009.

Leah will be using organic growing methods to plant rare and endangered heirloom vegetables and herbs, and to cultivate wild edibles on 17 parcels of donated land or growing spaces located in each of the five boroughs. A portion of the harvest will be shared with local soup kitchens, and series of public programming, including urban farming panel discussions, art happenings, and cooking performances around the city are being planned.

This is a personal journey exploring agricultural plant matter and wild edibles as sculptural material, community building through growing and cooking food, re-imagining land use, and re-incorporating agrarian sensibilities and simplicity into modern life.

June 2009
