MERDE magic

Magical Eternal Recycling of Divine Edibles

by Niels Peter Flint


- dont dream it - do it.....the bees are disappearing and so is the topsoil....if the bees die so might we Homo Stupidus - if the top soil keeps flying away (its expected that we will have 50 % less agricultural land in 2050) then we will have to live from our own shit....so why not start now......as a matter of fact we already do - everything comes from the earth - and yes you are right everything goes back again to where it came from - EVERYTHING...so yes we do eat merde, whether you like it or not.


Here you see MERDE magic micro installations being developed - they are really ONCE IN A LIFETIME projects or products - they are made from “MY-MATTER”  = merde = human residues that has been composted for 2 years...made into various paints / structures....put on various materials (what you see here is an experiment to make a material out of MY-MATTER).


In all MERDE magic´s there are specially designed seed combinations put either in or at the back of the structure / the poster / painting / material - and voila - you hang it on your wall and maybe later put it in your garden - or on your grave....

MERDE magic - an installation in Malmö, Sweden 2012

Magical Eternal Recycling of Divine Edibles

by Niels Peter Flint 2012



MERDE MAGIC is a micro installation envisioned, designed and made by Niels Peter Flint and Mother Nature is as much alive as everything else on this planet - currently its maybe dormant - you never know.

MERDE MAGIC will for sure never stop changing - and you can help - by placing it on soil maybe in your garden and adding water a magical change will happen - it will probably become a small garden with a tree in the middle - an acorn tree might “pop out”, from which you can harvest magical acorn that you can make into many Divine Edibles - you never know - in order to feed your magical acorn you must promise to give back what your have taken when it has been transformed in by you. Its like everything else - its matter that transforms magically forever.

Everything on this planet probably in this universe transforms magically forever - its the same with the MERDE MAGIC micro installation.


The interactive perspective of “MERDE MAGIC”


I hope MERDE MAGIC will inspire millions - preferably billions to start using MERDE in new and very old MAGICAL ways. MERDE is essential for life - and death - we cant live without it.


I hope to see new projects coming up - I hope to see pictures of these projects - and to see them online - feel free to send them to me and I will post them on http://www.npflint.com/NPFLINT_CONSULTANCY/MERDE_magic.html


I hope to see

- the making of thousands of small magical gardens.

  1. -made with your own MERDE - MAGICAL ETERNAL RECYCLING of DIVINE EDIBLES - Do this by making your own amazing composting throne, where you deliver your DIVINE EDIBLES for ETERNAL RECYCLING......its so simple and so beautiful. And if we all did this we could:

    1. -save billions of liter of drinking water every day

    2. -make billions of liters of biogas every year and this way save enormous amounts of fossil fuels being burned.

    3. -start to understand what a magical universe we live in and an incredible planet  we reside on and live from.

    4. -understand that everything on this planet and in this universe cycles around - forever..I call it ETERNAL TRANSFORMATION



The Materials used are:


This project is part of my constant search for new RADICAL SUSTAINABLE INNOVATIVE solutions - in this case using human remains that have been composted for 2 years for making new materials. In the installations I use the following materials.


  1. -compost - from my personal compost toilet in France - qui ce la MERDE FRANCHAIS - yes each “micro installation” contains real human composted MERDE. In this project / micro installation the MERDE is made into a kind of papermache - the compost is mixed with various natural colors + a natural binder that will biodegrade relatively fast - or rather its a kind of new material made from composted feces - called MERDE - and at the very end it composts and become a earth - again...


  1. -leather - from HOLY COWS in india who has died a natural death - the leather then is vegetable tanned by some of the poorest people on earth - we can help them by buying their leather. Leather can last for a very long time if handled right - and it can be reused and recycled many times too - and at the very end it composts and become a earth - again....

  2. -

  3. -seeds - in this specific MERDE magic Micro Installation the contained seed are - an acorn tree, and flowers. The tree will grow and one day it will transform also, maybe into a house and then into furniture - and at the very end it composts and become earth....again

  4. -

  5. -coconut fibre - one of the fibers that we dont use enough and that can be made into thousands of things - and at the very end it composts and become earth...again

  6. -

  7. -felt - comes from sheep wool  - its made into felt - felt can be made from old sweaters or other reused and recycled wool-fibers - and at the very end it composts and become earth - again...

  8. -

  9. -cork - can be used for many things - be reused and recycled and and at the very end it composts and become earth - again..

You are also invited to see the project WONDERWORLDCOMPODO about how the materials for MERDE magic are developed in an other art installation (project exhibited at ARS Electronica in 2010 - click here to see)
