C6H12O6 + O2 for 22nd IFVA Festival

irene-silver-award

Proud to announce that the C6H12O6 + O2 Project by Irene Agrivina won the Silver Award on Media Art category at 22nd IFVA Festival, Hongkong.

C6H12O6+O2 uses the symbiotic relation between Azolla, a unique water fern, and Anabaena (Cyanobacteria). Cyanobacteria is the only species that can perform oxygen-generating photosynthesis and nitrogen fixation. The photosynthesis of Azolla and Anabaena generates useful products like biofertiliser. In the process, Azolla reduces the amount of carbon dioxide in atmosphere, helping to alleviate the threat of climate change.

Exhibition Period: 9-29/3, 12pm-8pm
Venue:  Pao Galleries, Hong Kong Arts Centre
