Artist duo, Martinka Bobrikova (SK/NO/SE) & Oscar de Carmen (ES/NO/SE), has been working together since 2005. Their artistic practice is located in the act of transcending the boundaries between art and social research. The main theme is related to transitory and utopian. They graduated from Malmö Art Academy in 2012 and since then they have been more or less nomadic with major base in Norway.
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.
