Obsolescence

2019

(brass, copper, steel, electronics, plastic wire)

Obsolescence is a site specific installation - originally created for one of the wooden houses of "The Village" of Matthias Mollner (2010/11) - that consists of 29 mechanical creatures. The aim of the work is to evoke empathy in the viewer for those robots, that are moving at 6000 beats per minute and who eventually will wear down with time. 

Can we as human beings embrace transience - especially our owns and natures? What will we have to create to imitate the nature that we’re currently destroying? And how can we learn to not be attached to what we create?
