Multispecies Collaboration is a water cycle that requires active participation. When the black pump is being squeezed, water is pushed up to the top where it is collected and used to keep a tomato plant alive. Any excess water runs out and through three batches of pink oyster mushrooms, which are not only edible, but can also filter water with their mycelium. From there the water finds its way down again to the water collection pot, waiting to be pumped up again. The installation represents a project of the class Design for the Living World in cooperation with raumlabor berlin – The Floating University Berlin. From April to September 2018, a rainwater collection basin close to Tempelhofer Feld became an open space for experimentation and a structure for exchange of different kinds of knowledge. Participants from more than 20 international universities and experts from the fields of art, architecture, music and dance were building the campus together and diving into topics like water filtration, coexistence with other species in an urban context, or nationalism and identity politics. As part of this project we were designing and maintaining the greenhouse, which served as the main entrance to the site. The scaffolding structure was home to several hundred tomato plants from about 40 different natural varieties – one of them being the “Rote Murmel” which also took part in the installation. They grew side by side with potatoes and other edible and beneficial plants. Combined with information on plant care and biodiversity, the tomato seeds were distributed to the visitors – while the fruits of our labor were turned into ketchup and fries.
