Project Goal

Combining unnecessary waste and humanity by-products with living nature in an art installation to be seen by many people all around the world. Using the power and social function of art to state universal human problems with focus on environment. The design and creation of the project are based on science and modern technology.

Our doom, the one we are inevitably getting closer to. The doom we are so recklessly calling for. Can it be slowed down? Could we change anything? We are overwhelmed by desires weighing on us. With our last breath we want more. Curled at the bottom, we are painfully waiting for our final hour. Can we carry our sins to be reborn again?

The project is divided in two main parts — The Last Supper and Reborn.

 

The Last Supper

 

The first part covers the theme of humanity’s self-eating. The installation is comprised of a human embryo on a plate held up by its umbilical cord. The original model is made of papier mâché — egg cartons. These are the useless waste used to make something creative and a new life. A copy of the little plastic is placed in an aquarium filled with sea water with living corals planted on the embryo surface. The corals beauty and colours will gradually envelop the shape. The entire process is filmed with cameras from different angles.

 

Presentation

Last Supper’s presentation is accompanied by a massive audio-visual exhibition consisting of 40 large installations. There is a deliberate symbolism in that number. Each of the installations is made of unnecessary materials — egg cartons, paper, cardboard, disposed parts of different appliances, plastic, metal. The themes covered are derived from mythology and the Bible. These are the themes that have puzzled humanity since ancient times all the way to modern days — Creation, Sin, Forgiveness, Judgement Day. Part of the income from sold installations shall be donated to charity — for afforestation.

 

Reborn

The second part will be recreating the project in a natural environment. Finished, the sculpture shall be made of ceramics, sized 3 m in height and 1.5 m in diameter. The final placement of the object shall be in a divers-friendly cove. The corals shall cover it completely in nine months. Submerged in a natural environment it shall reflect the idea of rebirth. The place could gain popularity and attract many visitors.
