An extruder built into a robot transforms plastic granules into anamorphic objects, which have a plump, glossy surface right from their birth. As the material swells out of the robots' organs, it curls and warps until it cools and hardens in its final shape. The robot spreads these artificial pieces around the exhibition space like virtual brushstrokes.

The title of the installation RE:PLACES is short for ‘Recycling PLA Closed-Circuit Extrusion Shaper’.

It moves autonomously and makes creative decisions based on its sensor data. In a storage bubble, it carries around granules made of plastic waste. The objects created during an exhibition can be shredded and serve once again as raw material, resulting in an almost closed cycle. The robot plays our role as earthly actors and offers the possibility for critical self-examination. Viewers can watch solid plastic material being melted and transformed into works of art – the technical process of plastic recycling is revealed. Through this aesthetic experience, the relationship with the material is to be changed and public discourse on plastics encouraged.
