EUREKA OUTHOUSE GALLERY - HIGH FALLS, NY. USA, JULY 2018.
The EUREKA! Outhouse, Publishing House, Gallery and Center for Creative Pursuits and Education is an Artist run project space located in an outhouse at Clove Valley Farm in High Falls, NY. The mission of the space includes connecting and expanding community, providing artists with an alternative platform for showing work and making new site specific work, hosting education and skill based workshops, and publishing free Zines and cheap art publications.
This project was Inspired by the ideas behind permaculture and organic farming where composting toilets are an ideal way to close the nutrient cycle from human waste bringing it back to the soil and nurturing the production of healthy fruit orchards. In fact all humans are losing an incredibly expensive amount of nutrients everyday by flushing down their toilets.
This intervention was created by writing using found objects displaying a small collection of rocks, bones and objects related to consumerism.
