Upcycled computers were installed and connected with a miniature ecosystem of air-purifying plants. Using the principles of theBiomoddprojects, heat from the computer electronics was used to increase the temperature of a prototype greenhouse. The walls and sides of the station were used by workshop participants and visitors to draw sketches and share ideas.
