LabPortal 5: Ronald van der Meijs, A Time Capsule of Life
October 6– December 1, 2013 Opening Sunday Oktober 6, 15 – 18 uur
In his work, which incorporates natural processes of growth and decay, Ronald van der Meijs compares ways in which nature and humans organize themselves. A Time Capsule of Life is a hanging ad moving sculpture, the structure of which derives from a seed; a complete survival package. The sculpture is created from plastic bags, a contemporary mode of distributions of daily goods, which, connected together, form a transparent structure of cells and conduits. By connecting the plastic bags with air tubes the bags are regularly pumped up, bringing the seed to life.
