Solimán López

Invisible Pegaso, 2024

Resin, electronic ink and copper & MP4

3 x 18 x 20 cm

Ed. of 6 + 1 AP

Invisible Pegaso by Solimán López is the conceptual and visual result of a process of recovering copper extracted from electronic materials using a community of extremophile bacteria in water from Chimborazo dated at over 6,000 years. The process conceptually responds to the idea of turning this technique into a future possibility to make space missions and space debris recovery an achievable reality in collaboration with nature. The resulting sculpture is a three-dimensional scale replica, 3D printed, of Chimborazo, the closest place on Earth to the sun. This piece is coated in its final layer with copper recovered by the bacteria in the fossil water, creating a new topography for a mountain that was a volcano, is a glacier, and that could, in the future, become a mountain of electronic waste.
