PROJECT ECO CORAL – UNIVERSITY SAARBRÜCKEN

The latest project Eco-Coral with her students of the University Saarbrücken was supported by Villeroy&Boch and Festo. The works were presented at the Biodesign Challenge 2017 Summit at Museum of Modern Art and exhibited at School of Visual Arts in New York City in June 2017.

Eco-Coral is a technology-driven and strongly network-oriented research project.

 

As a scalable alternative to vanishing coral reefs, the students modified a 3D-printer to create dead lime stone corals – which when settled on sea beds, offer nutrients and form a new habitat for marine flora and fauna and marine microorganisms by using natural materials.
