AV1 explores new ways of (re)using the waste of our contemporany society. 

After developing a way to concentrate the energy liberated through the electrochemical reaction of different fruits and vegetables, a critique of modern society's consumption methods through recycling from the trash of surrounding supermarkets, is shown on the exhibition space.

The action consists on searching for organic batteries (basically citrics and potatoes), setting up a modular installation and performing an audiovisual set; in the following days the instalation runs by itself because of the augmentation of the electrochemical reaction that allows a constant change of audio and video patterns.

AV1 installation continues reacting till it's putrefaction, making the flow of energy decrease.
