Sustainment Experiments

SUSTAINMENT EXPERIMENTS is a new artwork and public engagement project that considers what action/s can be taken in the face of ecological and climate crises.

Sustainable experiments

SUSTAINMENT EXPERIMENTS is a way of thinking through this idea and giving form to a collective political ecology that considers inter-species dependency. Deirdre O Mahony will work with farmers to use institutional and non-institutional public spaces to unpack the issues around food production, climate change and biodiversity loss through soil health and soil remediation.

SUSTAINMENT EXPERIMENTS: PLOT looks back to a technology, the potato ridge that was born out of the need for food security in Ireland’s past, and forward to future food security, biodiversity and resilience in the face of climate change. See it outside VISUAL now.
