” Anarchist tool for sale”.
One hundred of eggs have been prepared and disposed in a vending machine, installed between the FRAC and the mural painting realised in 2017 by ESPO Stephen Powers. An interactive installation realised in resonance with the approach of few local activists projecting eggs filled with painting on the city mural painting. With the automat, everyone had the possibility to buy projectiles…
Except that, once it was choosen, the egg was crashing down the machine and became imposible to use. The splashes realised abstract piece of art semi-public in the machine automaticaly.
