Title:
Asphalt-Rubber Instalation

Author:
Marcos Pereira de Almeida

Description:
The project consists of an INSTALLATION of a mountain of tire rubber, ground in the process of retreading the tires of machines and trucks. This mountain of rubber invading the environment, must cause the perception of the voluptuousness of development, overwhelming everything and everyone. The installation has a sensory side, when stepped on it causes a feeling of instability that refers to the “SUS or unsustainable” development. In addition, the smell of the rubber is striking and characteristic. The installation expresses my criticism of the development process, without sufficient care for our environment, lives or natural resources. . My pleasant surprise when looking for this material for painting and installation at its origin, was to discover that the tire, once cut and scraped, ends up being a material rich in recycling used in new asphalt and other uses, such as synthetic grasses, shoe soles, floor insulators, changing from villain to ally of sustainability.
