Lorenz Potthast: “A positive vandalism machine”

“communication with the future – the petroglyphomat: Der Bremer MedienkĂĽnstler Lorenz Potthast hat eine mobile Graffiti-Fräse entwickelt, mit der man Steingravuren realisieren kann. “Der Petroglyphomat ist eine positive Vandalismusmaschine die als mobile, computergesteuerte Fräse funktioniert, mit der man Nachrichten an die Zukunft hinterlassen kann indem sie in bedeutende Kulturdenkmäler eingraviert werden.” / “The concept of the Petroglyphomat is a strategical reaction to the technical and financial boundaries which normally limit the possibilities to communicate a message to the future. The idea is to use long existing, important places which most likely will also exist for a long time in the future as infrastructure and expand them with a new communication layer. The machine creates snapshots of our increasingly digitalized environment by converting pixel-based, iconographical symbols into modern stone engravings (petroglyphs).” Via: Vy, merci!
