Cooking Apparatus

Kinetic Installation, 2022

Dimension: 65cm(L) 54cm(W) 34cm(H)

Material: Microwave, expired ready-to-eat food, expired seasoning, motor, iron sheet, Arduino Uno, rubber

This work consists of a broken microwave, some expired ready-to-eat food and seasoning.  All the materials were found in artist’s kitchen, which were deserted by previous residents during the last national lockdown. Through the crude, fragile and precarious appearance, this installation provokes protests in food waste and consumerism social issues. Furthermore, this work can be seen as a betrayal of the sophisticated museum-oriented artworks and an irony of the social system under the ‘new normal’.
