|HELLO [at] YBCA.ORG|
In partnership with the Global Climate Action Summit, YBCA offers free admission to its current exhibition Bay Area Now 8 as a part of “Green Thursday.” BAN8 Selected Artist Hyphae Design Laboratory will welcome visitors to our Third Street Courtyard with a full demonstration of their installation PProphets.
PProphets is created on the basis that the artistic platform provides a uniquely effective inroad to addressing the social and ecological taboos of sanitation and the body. It aims to provide a whimsical, hopeful, optimistic and function art piece that is relevant beyond itself and the Global Climate Action Summit.
Participants will be able to engage with the work and demonstrate how it functions, from collection and analysis, to fertilizer extraction, energy production, water recovery, data inference, and finally, bottling.
Following the activation, participants are invited to engage with the artists around water consumption and conservation, city sanitation, and how new forms of architecture and design can address some of the most basic issues cities struggle with on a daily basis.
