“Puissance” questions our past productivist utopias and our dreams of dematerialized wealth through an absurd and poetic game of alchemical transformation whose work is ultimately the transmuted matter.
The project “Puissance” explores a relationship between energy, work and the production of virtual wealth. A complex machinery mixes computers and mechanics in a spatial and sound installation. This machine “mines” a virtual currency, the heat produced is transformed into mechanical work and sets in motion a tiny music box playing a song that we end up identifying as the “Internationale”.
