Amoco Score I

Black plastic found object, Epoxyde, 150 cm

Ground water, polluted by plastic remnants from the sea, here comes back to life, out of their own faeces.
Sarcastic allusion to the oil tanker Amoco Cadiz – which sinking in 1978 caused one of the worst ecological disasters in history – the art piece replays the score of a catastrophe on an oil slick background.
Scraps from the oil silos strewn on the beaches are taken and sampled as a musical sculpture, in an industrial way. Taken in and regurgitated, filtered by life, each element brings back to the mechanic sounds of its origins.
