Nil by Mouth 2013-14

Nil by Mouth: an art science collaboration on sustainability focused by food and farming.

Nil by Mouth is a partnership between Crichton Carbon Centre and Wide Open working with the Scottish Government’s Strategic
Research Programme: Environmental Change : Food, Land and People. The project aims to enable and equip artists to create new artworks addressing sustainability and a low carbon future. We believe that artists can engage multiple publics and act as
‘opinion multipliers’ provoking people to think about issues of food and sustainability. This project is funded through Creative Futures, the Talent Development programme of Creative Scotland.

Nil by Mouth concluded with an event at the Scottish Parliament documented here.

The poster below explores the emerging pattern of interdisciplinary collaboration within the project and was presented as part of Dirt Dialogues at the 2014 World Congress on Soil Science in Korea.
