    Organisms that person need to construct their hypothese and enter them, surrounding themselves with ordered presentations of their suppositions. Our claim: Architecture can help person figure herself out.

    Every Tree
    a brother
    Every hill
    a pyramid
    a holy spot

    Every valley
    a poem
    in xochitl
    in cuicatl
    flower and song

    Every cloud
    a prayer
    Every rain
    a miracle

    Every body
    a seashore
    a memory
    at once lost
    and found

    we all together:
    in the night
    dreaming up
    the cosmos.

    Chicano poem from the book Original Instructions, by Melissa K. Nelson

    Lyrics, say something like:
    'With each breath,
    We fall into that love.
    Let's not struggle,
    When falling into that love.

    ...with each breath, we are burnt!

    -Many times we've put up with fire of despair.
    -Many times we've been burnt by fire of despair.

    Look into that fire that comes from Love.
    Look into that Love!'

    The Holy Evolution

    The Tree of Intoxication
    "Gonds make liquor from the flowers of the Mahua tree. If you take small amounts, and mix it with good herbs, it is a medicine for many ailments. If you drink a little more, it is pleasant. But if you drink too much, your very form can change, and depending on your character, you may become a mouse or a tiger, a pig or pigeon."

    We are all breaths
    that run from The Source
    as rays from the Sun-
    making thought an entity.

    Languages, including digital codes, are symbolic (re)presentations, rising up from highly developed social structures.These social structures have externalized human memory, both out of the mind and out of the place of present. So this memory is a link between culture and brain. It makes one think if any creature is to receive and understand these messages will be of human species.
    So could it be in future, when humans have colonized space, if encounter with these messages out there in space, they will need tools and knowledge to understand human intelligence at our time, when the messages were sent?... If humans could be the receivers of these codes what is our memorabilia to the upcoming generations and future space archaeologists?

    The Locavores appeared in San Francisco in 2005 and define themselves as ‘a group of culinary adventurers who eat foods produced in a radius of 100 miles (160 km) around their city’. By doing so they aim to reduce impact on the environment inherent to the transport of foodstuffs, while ensuring their traceability.

    Local River anticipates the growing influence of this group (the word ‘locavore’ made its first appearance in an American dictionary in 2007) by proposing a home storage unit for live freshwater fish combined with a mini vegetable patch. This DIY fish-farm-cum-kitchen-garden is based on the principle of aquaponics coupled with the exchange and interdependence of two living organisms - plants and fish.

    The plants extract nutrients from the nitrate-rich dejecta of the fish. In doing so they act as a natural filter that purifies the water and maintains a vital balance for the eco-system in which the fish live. The same technique is used on large-scale pioneer aquaponics/fish-farms, which raise tilapia (a food fish from the Far East) and lettuce planted in trays floating on the surface of ponds.

    Local River responds to everyday needs for fresh food that is 100% traceable. It bets on a return to favour of farm-raised freshwater fish (trout, eel, perch, carp, etc…), given the dwindling supplies of many saltwater species due to over-fishing. It also demonstrates the capacity of fish-farmers to deliver their stock live to a private consumer as a guarantee of optimum freshness - impossible in the case of saltwater fish that has been netted.

    Local River aims to replace the decorative ‘TV aquarium’ by an equally decorative but also functional ‘refrigerator-aquarium’. In this scenario, fish and greens cohabit for a short time in a home storage unit before being eaten by their keepers, the end-players in an exchange cycle within a controlled ecosystem.

    Materials: glass: blown & thermoformed, water pump, joints.
    Dimensions : Large : 64 x 29 x 39 inches, Small : 29 x 18 x 36 inches.
