THIS IS THE RESULT OF 35 FAILED TESTS | 2022
this is the result of 35 failed tests is an experiment with biomaterials carried out by the artist Felipe Shibuya in his residency at Cultivamos Cultura + Arteria_Lab. During these experiments, Shibuya tried to visualize the landscape of São Luís through the colors of plants, soil and water, with the aim of transforming them into a blanket of dyed bioplastics. However, of all his 35 attempts, only one bioplastic produced the expected result. In his residency, Shibuya allowed the process of his piece to show him the challenges still encountered by artists who seek new alternatives to produce more sustainable art.
