POOLICIOUS is a pop-up store proposal that I created in collaboration with Eline ten Busschen and Jodie Visser during my studies (2017). 


Why Poolicious?

POOLICIOUS responds to an essential, but often forgotten, part of our quest for a circular world. Besides closing our food and nutrient cycle POOLICIOUS proposes an alternative narrative about our poo and pee. It informs the visitor about the nutrient leek in our current food and sanitation system and activates a discussion about how things can be done differently.

How does it work?

1 - Donate poo and pee

In the pop-up store visitors can donate their poo and pee in one of the waterless toilets for the the production of the poolicous products.

2 -  Substract Usables

The usable parts of poo and pee will be substracted. For example: keratine, fatty acids, protein and water.
