Vanitas Machine – The transience and extension of life

Created by Verena Friedrich, Vanitas Machine explores the desire for eternal life and the potential of life-prolonging measures. Vanitas Machine uses a candle placed in the centre of glass tank to represent human breathing process, consuming oxygen and producing carbon dioxide and water. The higher the oxygen and energy turnover, the shorter the burning time of the candle. By controlling the supply of oxygen, the life span of the candle can be extended.
