Installation designed with Gaëtan Robillard
Mr. Pile translates the soil’s energy potential and bacterial development. Inspired from the principle of microbial fuel cell, this installation is made up soil and nutrients (leaves, straw, branches), six soil batteries, a sound diffuser made of oak and a stainless stell funnel. Fed by the energy from the soil, the cone reveals sound activity of organic cells and enables Mr. Pile to talk.
