Sulphium
2020


Reconstruction of a Ciceronian gold coin obtained from the processor of my first computer (Intel Pentium 1992). On the coin an ancient contraceptive in the form of the SULPHIUM plant, so valuable that it was kept in the Roman mint. This plant was so popular that it was exterminated, and who knows, maybe if everyone had it in their garden, we would not suffer from overpopulation on Earth.

The work was commissioned by the exhibition “Kongres Futurologiczny” in Hotel Indigo in Krakow, inspired by Stanislaw Lem’s book. Curated by Anna Batko and Alek Celusta.
