Casting Haze 雾霾铸型

A lecture performance and installation by Katrin Hornek.

Date: Aug, 16 - Sep 3, 2018
Location: I: project space

Casting Haze, Base is a lecture performance and installation by Katrin Hornek.

Capture CO2 out of air or water, and re-mineralize it into a sculpture. Like an artificial shell. Then, award the sculpture as a trophy. At 14 kg, it will weigh the same as the average monthly human lung output of CO2 in dormancy. Atmosphere – The Decarbonization Trophy. A collective problem needs a collective prize.

Carbon Dioxide, the de-materialized product of industrialization, heating blanket of climate change, and backbone of computerized societies, is involved in all metabolic processes, from organisms to the earth’s crust. It connects our CO2-emitting lungs with deep sea shells, all biomass, exhaust pipes, and the skyscrapers that use shell-limestone to bind their cement composition.

Researchers all over the world are joining the challenge to artificially re-edit, rewind, and fast forward this carbon cycle. Their goal is to bring CO2 into a stable, storable state, or reintroduce it into profitable, productive cycles. In dialogue with selected research institutes, the trophy will be developed according to collected 3D samples of their carbon engineering work.

The award will be handed over in 2020 to individuals or research groups who will have helped to reshape the world’s climate in the most sustainable way.

_《雾霾铸型,基座》_是Katrin Hornek将举行的演讲表演和装置作品。

将CO2从空气或水提炼出来,再把它重新矿化成一个雕塑。宛如一个人工牡蛎。接着,将它作为奖杯颁发出去,它14公斤的重量正好是人类处于休眠状态的月均二氧化碳肺输出量。大气层 — 脱碳奖杯。一个集体问题需要一个集体奖杯。

二氧化碳,工业化的非物质产品、气候变化的电热毯、电脑化的社会脊梁。从生物到地壳的代谢过程,它都随处可见。它贯连着我们释放二氧化碳的肺脏、深海的贝壳、一切生物量、排气管……摩天大楼也不例外地利用贝壳灰岩来巩固它们的水泥组构。

全世界的研究员都在加入编辑、倒回、快进碳循环的挑战。他们的目标是把二氧化碳转换成一个稳定、可长久储存的固态或者将它引入可盈利的生产线。奖杯设计的过程将参照个别研究机构提供的碳工程3D样品。

奖杯将于2020年颁发给以最可持续的方式帮助改造世界气候的个人或研究团体。
