“I wish it were as easy to banish hunger by pressing that button”
A bust fragment of Diogenes the Cynic is physically connected to an electronic mainboard.
Its operating system monitors the number of likes of an Instagram post consisting of a photograph of the artwork and its title. In case the post does not recieve at least one like every twelve hours, its life bar consisting of four LEDs drops. The installation will shut itself down forever if the life bar drops to zero.
Updates on the state of the sculpture will be transmitted using Instagram stories.
