Commonsausstellung im Gemeentemuseum in Den Haag

Die slovenische Künstlerin Marjetica Potrč und Ooze (Eva Pfannes & Sylvain Hartenberg) haben im Frühjahr/Sommer 2013 im Rahmen der JA_NATUURLIJK eine Commonsausstellung im Gemeentemuseum in Den Haag eröffnet: <> Kurz bebloggt hier:

Potrč’s Statement zur Ausstellungseröffnung:

“I see The Commons as a new platform for addressing and reinventing what was called ‘public’ in the modernist period, during the postwar efforts to construct the social state. The old ‘public’ paradigm clearly does not work in our current neoliberal times. Public space, for instance, is being extensively privatized. For me, the current interest in The Commons reflects people’s desire and demand for a new social contract, a new citizenship. Rights and responsibilities are redefined, that’s the price we have to pay for freedom as we reimagine our role in the governance of cities and seek genuine coexistence, instead of gated communities and ghettos, in the difficult times ahead.”

DRM Chair - Chair that self-destructs after 8 uses

Der DRM-Chair ("Digital Rights Management-Stuhl" - DRM siehe auf Wikipedia) bietet acht mal eine Sitzgelegenheit, danach zerstört er sich selbst.

"A small sensor detects when someone sits and decrements a counter. Every time someone stands up, the chair knocks a number of time to signal how many uses are left. When reaching zero, the self-destruct system is turned on and the structural joints of the chair are melted.
The number of use was set to 8, so everyone could sit down and enjoy a single time the chair. The cast-wax block is embedded with nichrome wire, the sensor made with Arduino counts the people and number 8 is reached the system is turned on."
