Katherine Ball

Katherine Ball is a habitat for fungi and bacteria located on planet Earth. Her artistic interventions reimagine the infrastructure of everyday life, and have included: living in an off-grid floating island building mushroom filters to clean a polluted lake, learning the art of biological sabotage in an apprenticeship with nature, and bicycling across the USA looking for small-scale ‘solutions’ to the climate crisis. Her books include ‘Not Broken Yet: Life in the Mojave Desert’ and ‘Utopia Walks Away: Infrastructure in Copenhagen, Denmark’. In 2018 she was the artist-in-residence at the Floating University Berlin. Her websites are everydayinfrastructure.net & katherineball.com.
