MAKING_LIFE 2014–2015

Living Ashes
posted by admin on 6 April 2015

We are exploring the implications of concepts of agency, matter, animation, life and death through the chemical process of saponification and protocells. We have started experimenting with the saponification process. We have discussed what we would like to do experiments with. The first experiments of making potash and lye have been done with birch tree ashes. We also would like to try banana peels, bio waste and other living material for making lye.

We will update our progress on the project blog (see below). This is also our main platform for communication.
