Sound Fertilizer at Tiefgarage Galery, Cologne

without comments

Permacultural installation that utilizes sound, light and living plant  “Sound  Fertilizer” is in its further developement at Cologne gallery Tiefgarage situated in multicultural Ebertplatz, between 22. and 26. July 2018.

Zucchini plant is positioned at the middle of the gallery, among other works. It has been planted in the straw bale at Center for Creative Solution in Croatia and after few months transported with  car over the half borders to Cologne. Cucurbita L has no known origin, some coming from USA and some from India. Its multiculturality resembles every large EU city and especially Ebertplatz where it is situated. 

Lighted with the light of 4000K enables growth and flowering, while two recycled mobile phones play sets of frequencies created especially for that plant.

Sound Fertilizer encourages plant to grow in healthy and stable conditions, inside the gallery, speaking on more levels about the anthropocentric culture that grows on both neo liberal capitalism or social state of liberal humanism, while neither of options are furthering away from unbalanced relationship of people as subject and plants as object.

This installation makes plant a subject, as sound is artistically produced and intended for a plant. Art in this case, is for a plant.

Environmentomania 2

“In some situations water is full of energy, sometimes it is sluggish and exhausted; in some conditions it dies. “To an untrained eye dead water still looks like water. So we expect it to do the same job as healthy energetic water.” Charlie Ryrie, author of The Healing Energies of Water.”

Environmentomania 1

without comments


“Harvard researchers investigated 6,214 cases of major depression for factors that would predict transition to bipolar disorder. Clinical characteristics such as age of onset or atypical symptoms did not predict manic episodes. Risk factors included younger age, black race/ethnicity, and a less than high school education. A history of social phobia, anxiety disorder, child abuse, and recent problems with social support were also associated with increased risk. Results will appear in an upcoming Journal of Clinical Psychiatry.”
