MATTIA CASALEGNO - RBSC.01

Scientific installation - Italy

The kinetic sculpture is an uncanny electromechanical apparatus lingering between an improbable liturgical device, a stamping press, a guillotine and a bread machine. It is designed to produce a thin, round wafer of edible bread and to stamp a logo on it. Engraved on it, we can read a symbol that suggests a sort of recurrence, a loop between the two chemical elements, Carbon Dioxyde (the symbol of pollution par excellence) and Oxygen (the medium we breathe and upon which life emerges).
