Zero Footprint Campus was an art programme in the public area of the Utrecht Science Park, the area formerly known as De Uithof in Utrecht. Twelve artists selected from the Netherlands and abroad have been commissioned to conduct a one-year artistic study into the possibilities and impossibilities of Zero Footprint Campus. To what extent is this area, with its users (researchers, students, canteen staff, security staff, etc.), suitable for creating new works of art? How can this work contribute to and shed some light on our search for a sustainable society?
