Food Work | La Sala Vinçon | Barcelona | 2001

FOODWORK, May 2001 at La Sala Vincon Barcelona We feed and nurish ourselves with both edible matter (food) and information and data. This energetic (vital) matter, assimillated by the body, keep us physically and intellectually alive. FOODWORK brings the everyday (food and nurishment) closer to the world of technology, information and communication; the contemporary world.

The exhibition shows 18 pieces based on food and an Automatic (karaoke) SPAMT Factory system: A system that encourages the viewer to perform "SPAMT" altruistically for themselves and for the public. The individual becomes part of the political-economic system.Picture 1: T-Cake / G-Power
