Artist and educator, Hugh Pockcok is weighing all of his food and drink and all of his urine and shit. The difference between the two weights is approximately what has been transformed into Energy. "This energy is what moves my body and mind. During this period of time I am finding that I am able to more closely observe the passage of energy as it moves from the food that I eat, tthrough my body and then, through the many interactions I have, out into the world."

Den Haag
In 2009 Stroom Den Haag begins the program Foodprint: Food for the city. The program takes place over the course of two years and focuses on the influence food can have on the culture, shape and functioning of the city, using The Hague as a case study. With a series of activities Stroom aims to increase people's awareness of the value of food and to give new life to the way we view the relationship between food and the city. The program invites artists and designers to develop appealing proposals on the subject, while at the same time establishing a clear connection with entrepreneurs, farmers, food experts and the general public.

For the Garage festival 09 Free Soil have conducted a site specific research project investigating the environment of the Baltic Sea.

We created an alternative archive of political and historical events that have occurred in the Baltic Sea region, especially Stralsund and linked these with the sea’s responses. The impact of Industrialisation, population growth and political changes has resulted in climatic and environmental changes recorded in the sea. Nature retaliates by creating new forms, one of the most significant being the spread and growth of toxic Blue Green Algae or “phytoplankton”
