RBSC.01 is an uncanny electromechanical apparatus
lingering between an improbable liturgical device, a stamping press,
a guillotine and a bread machine.
This 11 ft. tall kinetic sculpture is designed to produce a thin, round
unleavened wafer of edible bread and to stamp a logo on it. The logo
consists of an infinity symbol with the characters “CO2” and
“O2” at the two extremities of it, along the word “Vestigiality” on top.
RBSC.01 is the first production of a multi-media project
comprising a series of kinetic sculptures, objects,
texts and performances inspired by the enzyme RuBisCo, the most
abundant protein on Earth and key player of the Photosynthesis cycle.
