Urban Habitat Laboratory: Sustainability Workshops


Very Seedy Neighborhood
This workshop introduces participants to urban and guerrilla gardening tactics for the unnoticed and underutilized spaces in our neighborhoods.

Guilt-Free Geek
This workshop will demonstrate how anyone with a modest budget can set up a solar system to run basic electronics such as a laptop or other similar device. The hands on portion of this workshop will allow participants to experiment with simple electronics and set up a solar cell circuit.

Closet Gardener
The Closet Gardener workshop illustrates a multitude of fun and simple indoor and urban gardening techniques to grow your own food with the stuff you have lying around the house.

Sucker for a Syphon
Participants in the Sucker for a Syphon workshop will learn how to work with gravity based pumps and design a “grey water system” to implement at home.

Kelly Jaclynn Andres is an interdisciplinary artist who applies the apparatus of technology, portability, and location, from bicycles to communication devices, to create situations that combine the absurd with sensory-based experiences. By incorporating banal objects along with electronic media–  often as interactions between species such as yeast, bacteria, poultry, plant, and human, Andres deploys simple systems, objects and performances that allow participants to explore and interact with the immediate environment.
