RBSC.01
RBSC.01 is an uncanny electromechanical apparatus lingering
between an improbable liturgical device, a stamping press,
a guillotine and a bread machine.

This 11 ft. tall kinetic sculpture is designed to produce a thin, round
unleavened wafer of edible bread and to stamp a logo on it. The logo
consists of an infinity symbol with the characters “CO2” and
“O2” at the two extremities of it, along the word “Vestigiality” on top.

Although it was intended to produce a wafer every 20 min.,
RBSC.01, in its first version, was able to produce autonomously
only one wafer, which is been eaten by its creator the night
of May 14th 2011. Two weeks later the machine was dismantled
and most of its parts returned to their manufacturers.

RBSC.01 is the first production of a multi-media project
comprising a series of kinetic sculptures, objects, texts and
performances inspired by the enzyme RuBisCo, the most
abundant protein on Earth and key player of the
Photosynthesis cycle.
