Algaemy project information

 

The huge potential of microalgae has
been a subject of research in natural
sciences for quite some time. Meanwhile
the artistic and creative value of this
resource is mostly undiscovered land.

Algaemy investigates the potential of
microalgae in a creative context. The
designers Essi Johanna Glomb (textile
design) and Rasa Weber (product design)
reveal the aesthetic potential of a
resource which is mostly regarded as
weeds within Europe.

Algaemy is an analogue textile-printer
which produces its own (surprisingly
fast-growing) pigment with a wide color palette.
Microalgae have an incredibly wide
range of applications, such as nutrition,
energy- and oil production, filtering
qualities and even CO absorption.
The machine uses this potential to
create an autarcic circle of production,
which does not require additional
energy or material apart from man power
and the microalgae itself.

Algaemy is a design-laboratory, investigating
the potential of microalgae
as pigment in textile printing.
