A 100% organic circuit board. It provides nutrition to laborers who otherwise would have to work for food under hazardous conditions.
The piece literally is a “breadboard”. It consists of two transistors, two condensators, four resisters mounted on a wheat cracker and functions as a bistable multi-vibrator that makes an LED blink.
Beyond the word pun, the work is a reflection on electronic waste. Consumer electronics are mostly manufactured and “recycled” under precarious Third World labor conditions. The work invites the audience to reflect on how technology feeds our society. The board will rot after about two years, the equivalent of the average lifespan of a high-end personal computer. It is part of a series of works that combine everyday organic materials and substances with electronics and computation and use language puns as their source code. This piece, he promotes an alternative organic food approach to biological arts.
