Clever artworks, especially sculptures are nowadays designed in a way making it possible to decompose it. Art mustn't live for centuries. I'd like my art to vanish into thin air - which might be not possible because I most of the time use plastic, especially Floppy Disks. The sculpture in the Video was standing on the balcony of a German artist house. Over 1 1/2 years wind, rain, ice, snow has clogged the floppy disks.
