‘Window Farms’ are vertical, hydroponic, modular, low-energy, high-yield edible window gardens built using low-impact or recycled local materials.
Within the spirit of DIY culture and open-source production of Pixelache Festival, the Windowfarms Project offers an ideal case not only for presenting this form of artistic research tackling the aforementioned issues, but also the transferability of this DIY information-sharing and modelling, but also how ‘R&DIY’ projects manifest between communities in different national contexts. What is involved for the inventors to facilitate, and the makers to learn, who are remote from each other?
This installation forms part of Herbologies/Foraging Networks -programme, exploring the encounter of cultural traditions and knowledge of herbs, edible and medicinal plants, with online networks, open information-sharing and technology.
