Eggoal is a project to study and research on the
production / reproduction / transformation of egg processing through
the hen, the artist the science and the technology.To compare its
mass production with its symbols and its myths. To imagine the transformation
and then create it.
"The egg fragile and mysterious has always been a
strong symbol of condensed representation, it seems to escape to
all definitions, but it is one of myths and contains several stories
from Asia and the West: easter egg, egg primordial, egg originel
, cosmogonic egg ... The egg refleting all background and all begining
describing the passage of the one to many, from chaos to order,
the non-existence of life, the return of the informal, the embryonic
, the "matrix" of things. And the cycle of birth and rebirth continues
... It is found today in all its states, the world consumes the
egg into a sausage foarm, dried, frozen, dough... ... Battery, hen
food, breveted life ... when machines are patented to make eggs?
My work in this project wants to be poetic and political,
to confront and / or examine these different aspects. " For the
project I made 8 eggs with a 3D color printer. After modeling an
egg and adjusting the colors: yellow, white and eggshell, "the egg-making-
machine" can begin its work. In a white powder the machine prints
with a jet of colored catalyser the form, which gradually develops
itself until it becomes an egg. Eggoal or the egg-making-machine
is meant to question our relationship with nature, ours beliefs,
the essence of life, by drawing a parallel between the world of
production and the world of consumption, the technology and human
being, the biological and the technically modified, from our conditioning
to our real needs.
