 A model for purifying wastewater in country areas
Through activated sluge to a vegetable sewage plant
Kläranlage Düsseldorf / Ilverich

Invisible clearing or purifying microbes (sewage plant agents), made visible by pouring them into asphalt. Via the museum as an intermediate station (“Activated Sludge”- exhibition hothouse 5 at the Kunstmuseum Düsseldorf), these microbes were taken to their real field of activity and here, on site, developed further into a functional vegetable sewage plant, a trial model with three stages of purification, on the area of the technical sewage plant Düsseldorf Nord. Six years successful research by the university of RWTH Aachen.
A sewage plant on the sewage plant, to connect the otherwise separate special branches of art, research, technology and nature by means of joint and equal use.
