Fazenda 432: criação de insetos
O Farm 432 permite que as pessoas se voltem contra o sistema disfuncional da produção de carne atual, cultivando sua própria fonte de proteína em casa. Após 432 horas, 1 grama de ovos de mosca se transforma em 2,4 kg de proteína de larva, larvas que se auto-coletam e caem limpas e prontas para comer em um balde de colheita.

Farm 432: Insect Breeding

Farm 432 allows people to turn against today’s dysfunctional meat production system by growing their own source of protein at home. After 432 hours, 1 gram of fly eggs turns into 2.4 kg of larva protein, self-collecting larvae that drop clean and ready to eat in a harvest bucket.

 

Christine Ödlund

The Admiral’s Garden
Christine Ödlund’s work explores the borders of our knowledge of the world around us, connecting such themes as the chemical communication of plants, synaesthesia and theosophy. She works in a variety of media, including drawing, sculpture, video, watercolour and sound works.
Stress Call of the Stinging Nettle: When a plant reacts to a butterfly larvae feeding on its leaves, it releases chemical substances, or compounds. The characteristics of these compounds have been analyzed in collaboration with the Ecological Chemistry Research Group at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, and then transposed into amplitude and intensity of sinus tones, recorded at EMS (Electroacoustic Music in Sweden), Stockholm. Thus these beautiful graphic score and soundtrack by Swedish artist Christine Ödlund are direct transpositions of “the plant’s life, struggle and death”.
