The Kammari research project includes several interconnected levels of activity: the research group’s long-term research projects, individual research projects and related artistic interventions.
Long-term research projects:

Post-Fossil Art Residency – long term research project in the Kammari Residency, combining bio-art, ecological theory and critique and practical applications of energy and food sustainability. The aim is to combine work of theorists, scientists, artists and engineers to build, by 2030, a residency that runs completely independent of fossil fuels and external, industrial sources of materials and energy, whose carbon footprint is positive, and which facilitates the possibility of ecological and sustainable food production.
