Research and performance with Alexander Geijzendorffer on the economical model of recycling material and energies called Circular Economy, this time applied to the food industry within the sole space of a city like Rotterdam, Netherlands. The interest is to reduce the ecosystem targeted to the sole human body system by reusing hygienically its outputs into new inputs to create a meal based on it.
The performance was given in the structure of a workshop. First, the participants learned in a poetic monologue what is circular economy while a powerpoint was projected on a sand table in front of them. The presentation offered many ideas about the various scales this recycling system can take. We gave some examples through a picture game under the sand on the table.
Second, the participants dressed in white and wrote on each other the inputs and outputs of the human body.
Third, the participants were invited to perform some scientific experiments in which they created spoons with bones, filtrated water out of their urine and baked plates out of blood. The notion of disgust was explored as well. They created toothpaste out of marble.
Fourth, recycling of energies through a Laughing Yoga was organized while a suspicious picnic was served, with some results of the previous experiments.
