Martinka Bobrikova & Oscar de Carmen
Atelier Nord ANX
Opening 20.02. at 7 pm.
The exhibition is open Thursday – Sunday from 12-17
The presented project is based on our long lasting research of the possibilities of generating the energy from redundant fruit and vegetables. By means of a simple open hardware the energy acquired from fruit and vegetables is transformed through integrated circuits into audio-visual installations. Apart from an interesting audio-visual form the installations become the social criticism of the current consumerist society and also offer a certain alternative for a further use of fruit and vegetables, which were considered as redundant and unsalable by superstore chains. It is estimated that each year in the EU is thrown away 89 million tons of food products in good condition. The strict European standards on food expirationput into question when it questions the possibility of extending the useful life of certain products.
