MYTROPOLIS

What if powering your home was as simple as plugging into your backyard? Imagine a city where the energy needed to sustain urban lifestyles didn’t come from extracting precious resources deep underground, or dependency on the electrical grid, but from the topsoil around us.

Mytropolis exists as an intersection of art, science, and technology. A series of objects, such as phone chargers and modular light systems, are powered through experimental approaches to electricity using bacteria and algae
