Lois & Franziska Weinberger´s work revolves around the notion of a garden as a "perfectly provisional realm".
"The analytical research and artistic investigation of forms, both making up Lois & Franziska Weinberger´s creative science, are geared towards unleashing natural and cultural processes in an unstructured, marginal, incidental, and anarchic pattern of growth."
..the works are great -and it also looks as if they had fun doing them - as a friend of mine noted
(maybe you remember the weeds on the tracks at Documenta X)
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”
