Edison Media Project presents
WASTE TO WORK: EVERYMAN'S SOURCE
With Daniela Kostova and Olivia Robinson

Have you ever thought of sweat as a renewable energy source?  New media artists Daniela Kostova and Olivia Robinson have.  They turn what most of us think of as a waste of labor into power we can use to work.

In their performance, "Waste to Work: Everymen's Source", Kostova and Robinson will use video and an installed cabinet of batteries to illustrate how they developed batteries powered by their own sweat.  The power produced by the sweat batteries will illuminate a world map of LED shapes that designate centers of manufacturing and labor.

Sponsors for this Edison Media Project program are NYSCA, 1st Playable Productions, and Audio-Video Corporation.

Free with museum admission.
