Drawing Ecological Gardens

School Groups

Do you know how plants we eat grow? Would you like to discover seeds’ transformation into vegetables and fruits? Did you know bananas grow on trees, carrots grow underground until mature, and watermelons grow on bushes on the ground? The workshop takes inspiration from Microbial Fruits of Istanbul, a project by Orkan Telhan and elii (with support by IMNA) that invents new approaches towards making urban public spaces more resilient in the face of climate change and more adaptive amid big changes. We focus on fair ecology and discuss with students about our ecological garden. We draw our dream garden as well as fruits and vegetables that grow underground, above the ground or on trees.

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
