BMRS and the "Urban Curtain" Project
BMRS became involved in an art installation named Photo.Synth.Etica to highlight the devastating impact of carbon emissions on the planet. Known as the 'urban curtain' the installation is made up of 16, 2 x 7 metre modules, each containing micro-algae cultures sourced from BMRS and wrapped around Dublin Castle's Printworks building.
The modules are capturing carbon emissions from the city generated during the EIT Climate-KIC Climate Innovation Summit, resulting in a reaction which will see the algae change colour. The 'urban curtain' created by London-based ecoLogicStudio in partnership with Urban Morphogenesis Lab – UCL and Synthetic Landscapes Lab – University of Innsbruck.
