Nissa Nishikawa with Phytology
Nissa Nishikawa works with performance, painting, ceramics, glass, and film. Her practice interprets traditional forms of dance, ritual and craft in ways that illuminate the current crisis in ecology and community. She engages with alchemical and animistic practices through the use of elemental base materials, forging processes of transformation that are intuitively informed by a close observation of the intelligence of nature and the non-human as systems of navigation.
The all-gender liquid loo came out of a series of co-design discussions with Phytology about finding alternative ways to transform and compost human waste, whilst also creating a toilet space which is accessible for all genders and practices. (Hari, Compost Mentis / Phytology)
