Rambazamba
A kinetic sculpture made from electronic waste [in 2011]. All parts were taken from a local garbage place. Ramba Zamba is referring to the littering of third world countries due to the overconsumption within first world countries. The focus of this piece is the situation in Accra, Ghana. Containers with electronic waste are shipped from Europe (beside others) and sold at their arrival in Ghana – labeled as functioning ware. Local buyers can buy the ware only blindly. Being unable to check the ware, this leads to a mass of unusable devices being brought by the shipping containers. Ghana has no appropriate recycling or disposal system for this e-waste. Toxic components sicker through the ground into the drinking water which is used by people living nearby. Kids from the age of 6 burn the plastic cables in order to reach the valuable copper inside. In an enclosed manifest [Für Konsum] the visitor was urged for conscious consumption. Further a theoretical part explains influences on Ramba Zamba by earlier work of the Neauvaux Réalisme with a specific focus on Jean Tinguely. During the exhibition the re-activated engines and lights created metallic noise, rhythmic movements and unpleasant ashes – disrupting the enclosing silence of the white cube.
