Slowflow 2010 is the second in a series of trips down the Whanganui River, Aotearoa/New Zealand and takes place between Jan 21st and Jan 31st 2010.

Slowflow invites artists, technologists and environmentalists on a 10 day journey down the Whanganui River by double hulled 22 person waka haurua(canoe) and bicycle, creating a setting for a flow of conversations - Te Ia Kōrero. Part self propelled residency, part un-conference, part expedition - Slowflow provides an opportunity for discussing and reflecting on culture, technology and the environment.

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”
