The first public experiment in the ATKN research project explores some of the fundamental elements of wireless communication. Technological development made it possible to use changing electrical fields as messenger, first over wires later via electromagnetic waves through the air.

Each day we use our wireless devices to pick up the messages, that travel on these waves, out of the air. The airspace that surrounds us is filled with data. In this experiment two vertical axis windmills use the displacement of air to harvest energy to establish communication. The speed of the windmill and the amount of energy generated defines the quality of the connection between the two locations. Information will be send back and forth if conditions allow it. Air will generate energy which will produce communication and fill the airspace.

FRUIT takes up the challenge of elevating the ecological knowledge of consumers and encouraging a way of life that is friendly to the environment. We want consumers to be conscious of the entire life of a product, from production to utilization, and not just what they see in the stores. Consumers must be aware that every phase of a product's life influences the environment and ourselves.

Free Soil has produced a run of FRUIT wrappers, a website, and a traveling installation as part of an initiative to inform people about alternative food systems and local food movements. The wrappers are disseminated throughout the food chain by piggybacking on oranges. Information will be carried through the food system and into the hands of consumers. The wrapper holds information on a variety of aspects concerning food movements, transport and urban farming. Get your daily dose!
