The Plastomach, The Plastic Eating Stomach

The Plastomach, The Plastic Eating Stomach

A group project from Rutgers University Camden, which was entered into the 2018 BioDesign Challenge at NYC MoMa. Our civilization discards copious amounts of plastic, which then contaminates our land, rivers, coasts, and beaches. Plastomach, a domestic farming system that consumes plastic while producing nutrient-rich fungi, views this waste product as a viable resource. Our project proposes that every home should have a sculptural stomach that digests this debris and turns it into a food source for human consumption. Thus eliminating the need to throw away one time use plastics. Saving one environment while growing another, the Plastomach hosts Pearl Oyster, Blue Oyster, Shiitake, Reishi, and Turkey Tail Fungi.
