CREATION FRED FOREST SECOND LIFE

DUMP YOUR TRASH ON SECOND LIFE

Fred Forest at “Entropya/Art in progress” Gallery, Naples; Italy May 22nd – July 22nd 2008.

Tel : 00 39 335 80 92 771

A French artist on exhibition for the first time in Naples at “Entropya/Art in progress” Gallery offers you the possibility to get rid of your household trash at a most reasonable price!  A pioneer of video art (1967) and of Net.Art (1994), Fred Forest is an emblematic artist who headed up the sociological art movement (with the Sociological Art Collective) and Communication aesthetics with Mario Costa.

He has just created the virtual Experimental Territory Center & Social Laboratory on the Promenade des Anglais in Nice.  The aim of this structure is to produce ideas in order to better cope with the multiple problems affecting our society.  The first problem that he has dealt with is sustainable development and the protection of natural resources, though others shall follow: violence, terrorism, poverty, speculation, corruption, etc…

By calling on the expertise and collaboration of the technological hub of Nice Sophia-Antipolis, with its engineers and industry of innovation, he has conceived of a revolutionary trash “disintegrator” the functioning of which requires very little energy.  It is, indeed, a very strange and sophisticated machine the workings of which are based on the close intertwining of principles of the mind and of computing.  This machine has the surprising capability of dematerialising all objects placed inside its transparent structure.  It is for this reason that we recommend that all visitors maintain a respectful distance from the machine so as to avoid an irreversible disintegration accident.  The patented secrets of this spectacular invention are jealously guarded and, indeed, it is the subject of a merciless struggle between various actors in European industrial espionage.  Gone are thermal combustion incinerators; McDonald’s has recouped them (at an extremely low price) in order to develop a new lighter cuisine to replace the Big Mac in the long term.  The trash “disintegrator,” as it is known, garnered instant attention from the city of Naples.  An agreement has been struck with the city of Nice in the context of the Mediterranean Union, so dear to the President of the Republic of France, so as to allow the daily ferrying of trash shuttles from Naples to Nice with a compulsory stopover in Tunis.  NATO’s maritime fleet has been commissioned to escort this precious merchandise.  The unloading of this cargo will take place openly day and night, near the Hôtel Negresco and the WebPalace.  Henceforth, individuals from the world over are allowed to arrive on site with their domestic waste in hand – no need for prior attention to recycling – to feed this particularly gluttonous and voracious machine themselves.  The operation itself is to be understood in the context of a vast undertaking towards improving public and mental hygiene whereby artists’ utopias purport to resolve the problems that both politicians and scientists have been thus far incapable of appropriately addressing, namely the ever-greater pollution of our planet.

Instructions:  Prepare your own individual and portable trash bag. If you are using either the rail or road networks, be sure to open the plastic bag slightly when crossing the border at Vintimille so as to allow enough pestilent odours to escape to ensure that customs recognizes the authenticity of your charge.  Create an avatar on Second Life and then go to the following address:
