  7. Compost LED lamp
This project started with the idea of using waste as a prime matter. Most of the time waste is not properly disposed. This waste eventually ends in landfills, and along with the burning of fossil fuels and clearing of forests, is what produces excessive amounts of greenhouse gases, the fundamental cause of greenhouse effect, causing global warming. Another concern from which this project started, is the production of energy, one never-ending quest for men. So the question was simple, can we create energy from waste? Looking back at simple experiments, such as potato batteries, using just an anode and a cathode to make the electrons travel from one side to another, I started thinking that indeed, it might be possible. There has been a couple of dirt batteries projects done in the past. So I proposed this project using compost, to generate energy. The trick part about homemade compost is that it needs to be well ventilated and turned, and it also must contain the correct levels of humidity, for the correct making of the compost and for allowing electrons to travel continuously. The advantage of using compost is that as the matter starts to decompose the bacteria in it gets more active, allowing the electrons to travel faster, creating a higher level of voltage than dirt or potato batteries. The idea of this project is basically to create compost from organic waste (prevent it from going to landfill), and in the meantime produce energy from it. The Compost LED Lamp is a simple way of showing that energy is all around us.

    Day 05 - CO2 Trees

    This project is meant to raise awareness on how we are designing this costly machines to turn CO2 into oxygen, when we are cutting off the trees that do it for free.

    Based on the movie “The Lorax”, I propose an art installation that uses dead trees and red balloons that are filled by the people who walk in the exhibition, making it apparent how we are the ones responsible for this artificial outcome.
