A project about the role of humans in large ecosystems. It was created by Britta Riley and Rebecca Bray, artists who also have a company called Submersible Design.

Before taking any medication, we wonder how it will affect our internal organs, our friendly bacteria? What is the way of this drugs, beyond our bodies, drains and waterways that we swim or drink? Where’re our personal waste going?
This work can be seen our urine become a source of overfeeding, mutation and disease or a fertilizer for a new life cycle. The residues can stimulate the life or death.
The project includes a DIY kit to turn your urine into fertilizer.
