Matthew Lippincott and Molly Danielsson, mentors for the MFA in Collaborative Design’s Sanitation, Hygiene, and Integrated Technologies lab from fall semester, are part of an exhibition at the Center for Disease Control at Emory University. Constructive Interference is an interdisciplinary exploration of the impact of safe sanitation on human health that brings together artists and scientists from Emory University.
The exhibition runs March 19 - May 16. There is a reception March 26 at 5:30 pm in Claudia Nance Rollins Building, Room 6001. Lippincott and Danielsson present The Cloacina Project which “seeks to create open-source ecological alternatives to waterborne sewage in the urban West. We live in Portland, Oregon, and are currently engaging the public on regulatory reform of sanitation practices.”
They will also launch Sewer Catastrophe Companion: Dry Toilets for Wet Disasters, a handbook on emergency sanitation created by students from the Collaborative Design studio. Pre-release copies of the handbook will be available at the exhibition.
