WasteLand Bloom

Synthetic Biology:

A speculative responce to Mucking Marshes in South England, one of the biggest household & commercial wastelands in Europe.  

 

The process and act of digging holes in the ground, barrying our everyday litter- over time and by excess accumulation- the result could Only be; the production of irradated toxic wastelands.

 

The project engages with issues of a synthesized strand of fungi that acts as a biodegrading agent when immersed with toxic waste. Mycelium has the capacity of expanding  rapidly a web of interconnected micro degrading clusters. It thrives in such conditions.

 

It speculates on the new technologies i.e the usage of automated GPS system driven vehicles that deal with agrofarming, and also equipment that offer depth terrain/topography scanning.

We observe the growth and potential applications of synthetic biology, and wonder ;if we could grow petri dish hamburgers, why can't we scale up and create blooming synthetic landscapes out of our waste fields?

Perhaps we might start to engage with the idea of our waste being an asset and not as liability.
