Installation together with Space Caviar;
Player Piano: A Subjective Atlas of a Landscape of Labour
@ Design Biennale Saint-Etienne
→ 9 March - 9 April 2017
Player Piano is a visual and acoustic landscape by Space Caviar in collaboration with French musician Charli Tapp. Commissioned as part of the 10th Design Biennale St. Etienne directed by Olivier Peyricot, on the theme of "Mutations du Travail", it explores the timeless dream and dread of a world without work through a landscape of 33 films and a VR environment, accompanied by a live piano soundscape.
A proposed architecture of automated surreality for an era of post-scarcity, and a reconceptualisation of the wall as the most basic building block of perception.
Two bodies were scanned during sex, the resulting objects were used as a base for an ivy-growing algorithm and presented as abandoned concrete monuments over passed moments, long since lost to nature.

In today’s inexorably connected world a disconnected area acts as a safe-space for those of us who wish to remain free from Facebook’s geo-advertising and NSA’s eavesdropping. To be able to grasp the interconnectivity of our time we need to be able to take a step back and disconnect, not only from the internet but also from the power grid, the water mains and all other networks that we take for granted. Moss does not need anything else than sunshine and moist air to grow, and with aided by our technology it is possible to harvest excess electricity from its photosynthesis. The electricity fuels a Wifi-jammer that creates a shield of interference in a 15 m radius around the necklace.
The technology is based on the moss-powered radio by designer Fabienne Felder and professor Paolo Bombelli at University of Cambridge, who assisted me in making a prototype. The initial idea to contain the jammer in a necklace was not technically feasible at this stage due to the fragility of the hydrogen electrodes. This is a conceptual prototype of the technology and separate prototype of the necklace.
If nature is boring, change nature.
I live in a future of endless purposes, detached from this machine I become like the mouldy food in my fridge; trash, since my self is only defined through its relation to the sum of all the other self’s of the cognitariat, the body I am now a part of.

"But they also add another dimension to this standardised male fantasy of girl on girl action as they add poo to the equation. By doing that they completely rewrites the cliché and instead, leaves you (of you’re not into poo) quite disturbed." - anonymous youtube comment
