Salt is the all-purpose seasoning, so why not the all-purpose pharmaceutical too? Using the drug-laced water supply of San Jose and evaporating out all the water, artists Jon Cohrs and Morgan Levy create All-Salt, an all-purpose medicine for just about anything that ails you, all without having to go see a doctor for a prescription!Salt is the all-purpose seasoning, so why not the all-purpose pharmaceutical too?

With the great NYC Cool Roofs program, a team of volunteers has just painted the roof of Eyebeam white to reflect off summer sun. The improvement should reduce our summer electricity usage by 15,000 kilowatt-hours per year- this is the equivalent of turning off 350 light-bulbs for 8 hours a day, everyday of the year. Thanks to Lawrence Harris, Kenta Darley-Usmar and all the Cool Roofs volunteers.

The exhibition’s title, FEEDBACK, refers to the self-correcting mechanisms by which systems—in this case, ecological—respond to the influence they exert on their environments. The works on display echoed this recursive dynamic, from Rebecca Bray and Britta Riley’s DrinkPeeDrinkDrinkPee sewage processing organ, to Natalie Jeremijenko’s tadpole-dispensing prescription from the walk-in Environmental Health Clinic for the ecologically unwell. In direct response to the world’s loss of crop biodiversity Leah Gauthier’s Sow-In engaged the public, in partnership with local community gardening groups, to sow the seeds of those food plants most in danger of extinction.
