just arrived and we had schedule a public presentation of refarm. it was during the open studios event that occurs in eyebeam every month. the public comes and speaks with the residents, fellows and interns. so we had to make an express farm mainly because we need to have something to talk about :) since talk and drinks are things that go well together the eyebeam farm is a mentha-bar. a farm for teas, mojitos and caipirinhas ;) we built it mainly from stuff that we’ve found in the neighborhood. and what a nice neighbors we have here at eyebeam. we grab this box from one of the galleries in front of the street.
the guy told me that every week he cuts the boxes and put it out in the street to be collected by the recycling bus.
these are best-world-class-league woods used to mail art. from this you can have a small idea of the ecological impact of transporting stuff. it should worth the trip :) but before they go to recycling (whatever that is depending on the day and the city that you live) we are gonna extend this box life-cycle and make a nice box for our farm.
