I’m a grad student at Maryland Institute College of Art getting my MFA in Studio Art. I’ve taken an interest in ethics in the art practice and lifestyle in general. I live in a recycled school bus converted to home that is powered by solar energy. Secondly, I am really interested in using sustainable materials such as these but am feeling a bit stuck since sooo so much has already been invented with bacterial cellulose/SCOBYs and mycelium. I’m wondering what other things everyone else has tried growing? I’m also growing some yeast cells, but am really looking to move beyond aesthetical gestures and move toward ecological based artworks that both meet a conceptual goal and give back to the earth. What are your thoughts on concepts related to this or thoughts in general!!?
