2018 The Waterbeater (Milano)
This prototype is a gizmo designed to beat the hell out of water.
What is the practical usefulness of this device, you may ask?
None, I would be tempted to answer.
But some may say the same of Art…
So let’s think again: it is theoretically and practically a useless machine, developed to stir things up, to display an energetic image of constant motion coupled with an unequivocally macho noise.
So you may ask: can it be used to mix a giant Bloody Mary, to mount whipped cream, to make a messy pulp of almost anything else?
Absolutely yes! That’s a good point.
Yet, is it Art?
