About The Piece
The expression « Technocrat » comes from the « Slave City » system of society elaborated by AVL in 2005. The city of 200 000 inhabitants lives in a closed circuit and goes by a rational, effective and profitable logic. The organisation is complex but under control. The table top presents the city’s energy production. The system is ecological, based on the use of the excremental production of the men who play a capital role in satisfying the society’s need for autonomy. The faecal matter goes through a treatment process materialised by containers of different sizes and shapes for storage, decanting, filtration… to finally produce the bio-gas necessary for community life (food preparation, alcohol making…) and drinking water. The scenario is utopian but holds up scientifically in in-depth studies.
