DeComPUSter (ComPUSter n.1)

DeComPUSter (ComPUSter n.1)

Installation, Technological, Political / Social, Various materials, 110x210x150cm
ComPUSter is a sculpture being part of a set of six. This work is based on informal art/minimal art expressionistic and experimental language. It is made of objects combined in a new metaphorical symbolic meaning and enriched with sound and video for a fullest experience for the viewer.   Each object and each single detail of this artwork is either antiques or hand-made by the artist himself.

ComPUSter is the decomposition of both organic and mechanical matter, showing at the same time the obsolescence of materials and the obsolescence of minds, ideas and cultures. Old computers and proto-industrial machines joins the brand new computers in the same destiny: the inevitability of decline and oblivion.

Within the common concept, each ComPUSter is a unique representation of a different idea. The first one, called "DeComPUSter", shows how the computer is corrupting our intellectual faculties and literally turning into a brain meat grinder. The blade dominating the composition is a metaphor of the link between the observer and the eye looking from the installation monitor. The eye in the video is the eye of social media: we ourselves created our Big Brother.
