We recycled the leftover body of the laptop we used for our 'The History of Computer Art' project. We covered the motherboard with layers of soil mixed with seeds and thus buried the old functionality. But we kept the backlight of the screen providing light to the new creatures. The grass we planted in the soil growed to 20 cm height within 3 days pushing the keyboard keys aside.

Csoma's Wheel

Prayer wheel powered LED display in the Himalaya

New media installation in Sándor Kőrösi Csoma’s(?) sanctuary.

Flashing prayer-wheel: pieces of a bicycle and concrete, in a place where even Lara Croft couldn’t get to. In Ladakh, a region of the Himalayas, Kitchen Budapest, a technology focused media lab, has prepared a relatively low-tech installation: Csoma’s wheel. This installation is appalling and unique both in its material and in its form.
