A temporary installation in the Massachusetts Avenue Project’s new aquaponics greenhouse — a multi-channel sound piece exploring the hidden sonic ecologies of MAP’s innovative and sustainable aquaponics system.
Aquaponics is a mostly closed system of sustainable food production where fish wastes are used to fertilize plants and feed worms, and plants and worms are used to feed fish. MAP’s existing greenhouse contains some 5,000 tilapia, and will support 50,000 when completed.
