Metabolic Patience is a discussion toolkit addressing the relations and impacts of the Global Material Flow in form of a public game. The ordinary rules of the Patience/Solitaire game are adapted and transformed, illustrating the story of differently emerging and influential material life-cycles. A specific focus on cotton is used as a simplifying lens to understand the global perspective of metabolism. In context of the public installation the audience collectively takes over the role of the global market force, creating a discussion platform where a critical view on the current situation can be discussed.
Exhibited in De Ceuvel, Amsterdam together with Metabolic Amsterdam.
