Our bodies offer natural resources and bio-material unused for ethical reasons.
But how will this change in a future with less resources more sustainable mindsets?
No. 1 allows the average private household to make its own fertilizer from urine.
Users “harvest” urine with a special vessel, which is then drained into the machine,
where it is decomposed, chemically bound and air-dried for approximately 24 hours.
The outcome is an odorless white powder that provides enough fertilizer for several liters of water.
The final model was built in original materials – wood, glass and ceramics – using different digital and analog techniques.
Being an uncommon chemical procedure, it took a series of experiments with different additives, temperatures and
intervals – we constantly had a couple of glasses of urine on the outside window sill of our project space at university.
Needless to say, we were called the “pee team” and considered deranged.
