winner The OHO Award , 2006
Sašo Sedlaček studied industrial design and sculpture but later expanded these practices by mixing them with new/old technologies and by making processual art works that usually take place in public spaces. His work is in general defined with theories of disposal, with use and reuse of cheap technologies, waste materials and its recycling. His work can be defined as a friendly strategy of resistance; instead of using typical political or ideological means for intervention he rather uses friendly strategies of convincing and reminding us that we live in a over commercialized world where do it yourself strategies, open source, common goods can be an alternative for a growing number of those who feel excluded, disposed or just unsatisfied with the mainstream. His work shows us that only choosing among already existing things is not the only way and that individuals and groups have the potential to make small scale changes that can define their environment and influence others.
