       "Gargantua " by Franšois Rabelais, was a voracious mythical giant, from the late middle ages. In the installation he symbolizes the prosperity of the

      " Western World " build on the "death from starvation " of the " Third World ".

      The installation consists of a " videomorph" and  hundred disposable

      cardboard plates  on which the same morph is printed. The plates with the

      morph development: birth, identification, death from starvation, transitory,

      and re´ncarnation, refer to the contradiction between the utility of the

      plate and the plate as a decorative object. The number of the disposable

      plates refers to the industrial nature of mass-consumption.
