Play the world

When is enough enough, or in other words: How much does the world cost? Or: What are we leaving behind, only piles of garbage?
Play the world is concerned with environmental pollution mainly in the High-Tech fields or the pollution caused by these.
The installation uses the forms of the Tetris game (Тетрис – by Alexei Paschitnow). Though Tetris is always composed of four square blocks each, the number has been fourfold for the installation in order to incorporate the rooms height.
The used spray paint slowly removes the glue from the labels and therefore the labels from the disk. This lets the artwork change continuously. This simulates nature pollution.
Play the world is composed of 792 3,5" floppy disks weighing approx. 14 kg.
