kaben31995 – “kaben” Ecologica 95

kaben1kaben2International ecologic Expo, design and performance, Fortezza da Basso, Florence, Italy. Global Ecologic Exposition in a 16th century fortress in Florence. “Kaben”, Japanese for “petal”, is a design object in modular form.

Conceived as a creative answer to pollution, the kaben can be transformed in an everchanging piece of art by adding waste onto its adhesive black and gold surface, creating a story, a pattern, a reflection of life.

During the performance, a futuristic dress made of kabens and recycled plastic is worn to stimulate the public to make a statement, filmed and recorded at each stage of the modification.
