How might our pee transform our homes into energy-generating structures? Harnessing the power of human waste, the ALICE project ‘living bricks’ use microbial fuel cell technology to provide an alternative to fossil fuels. The bricks power a bio-digital artwork which captures their data to feed an animation based on bacterial foraging algorithms.
