Polyethylene_terephthalate
Bunkier Sztuki Gallery in Krakow, 2018



“I am not only a post-product, I am a re-product in its repetition. I am one of many copied bodies, repeated, multiplied. An endless edition of a micro-plastics spammed organism.”
Brought back to life during a performance, WetMeWild has become a cyber-guide on topics related to Xenoestrogen water pollution. Xenoestrogen is an artificially created component imitating the female hormone - estrogen, having similar properties as its natural counterpart. It is a component of, among others, hormonal tablets and bottled water plastic (in the form of Bipesfanol A). Because it is not biodegradable, entering the bloodstream is accumulated in the cells, disrupting the hormonal balance and increasing the risk of disease.
Mixed reality smartglasses Microsoft HoloLens was used for the action, along with a real-time scanning system by Kinect 2.0, allowing the created hologram in the form of a 3D model. Thus, the performance took place in two spaces: real and augmented reality.

Work was made in cooperation with Eternal.
