An evening of group discussion and hydrogen-stove cooking
Join our UK associate artist Nick Laessing for a conversation on energy utopias and the potential of hydrogen as a locally-produced sustainable energy source in an age of ecological and climatic emergencies. With invited speakers Rokiah Yaman (Project Manager, LEAP closed-loop technologies), Simon Ings (Culture Editor, New Scientist) and Dr Chiara Ambrosio (History and Philosophy of Science, UCL).
Nick will also introduce his own research exploring our relationships with technology and usership in a time of planetary urgencies, followed by a demonstration of his hydrogen kitchen, with the chance to try some food cooked on its stove.
Hydrogen kitchen is a work consisting of a water electrolysis system, that decomposes water into oxygen and hydrogen gas, and a specially-constructed gas stove. Made in collaboration with the Chemical Engineering department at University College London, it aims towards a low cost and open source alternative to conventional hydrogen systems
