Ph. Giorgio Benni

Our daily activities totally depend on electricity, and similarly most of the 21st century artistic production relies on an electrical outlet; therefore, what would happen in the event of a solar flare, which will force us to live without electricity for months?
The basic disaster kit is composed of a generator, a gas tank, a screen, a hard drive and the cables necessary for the functioning of each individual item.
The contents of the hard drive are “secret”: it may contain another artwork, a database of other artists’ works or a collection of images, videos and/or texts, anything that needs a technological device… or it may simply contain anything that the spectator wants there to be.
What would you save?
