350 ACTION at BIOFarm
On 350 Day at BIOFarm, the artist (Ms. Huang-Chen Tang), 4 invited families (9 adults and 7 children), several
friends, all BIOFarm workers (41 persons), and our farm dog ( her name is Shai-Hu）participated a special Water
Speedwriting Action Art. Seeing the fatigue of the water-print “350” from the wall, everyone realized how easy to let
go what we have, as how weak our planet is. We further used damaged organic vegetable leaves and roots which are
expected to make compost to draw our own organic 350 impression on paper. All signed and pledged to take action of reducing carbon dioxide at one’s best.

350 ACTION Art at BIOFarm (by Tang Huang-Chen)
Water at BIOFarm is the basic element of cultivating various creatures. By water speedwriting of the logo “350” on the wall, as an instant performance under a team work, no rehearsal, we showed the audients a fatigue of image but a rooting recall from heart. From such an Action Art to the re-thinking of and discussion between the audients, we are ready to take action together to protect our world in risk now!.
