Steel, paper data shredder, briquette press
500 x 500 x 500 cm
A hydraulic press is used to press small paper briquettes from document shredders. The press compresses the already compacted material. The fire briquettes are then burned in a small furnace. The exhaust pipes, which are shaped like a bench, heat up and the visitors can warm themselves. The press and the kiln have to be operated manually, but the visitors are free to operate them independently. The installation is based on my theoretical exploration of the theme of self-making under the influence of scarcity and abundance.
