“150L of water consumed per person / day” is part of the collection ‘Temporal’, commissioned by the Machado Muñoz Gallery in 2016.
The ‘Temporal’ collection is based on the concept that starts with the following facts retrieved from United Nations open data about production and consumption in Spain: Average kilos of asphalt produced by second; the amount of copper tube that we consume; the water volume used by person every day in Spain; and the amount of metres of cable stolen per hour. This data is transformed into objects for this collection, TEMPORAL, where Lucas Muñoz Muñoz translates that information into volume and quantity of material, creating a series of furniture in which the form is defined by these material/ time equivalents. Decontextualizing this information from graphics and abstract numbers in newspapers and locating it in a human space, he materializes, in the living room, the footprint of our presence as citizens and consumers in the world.
From an observationist point of view, Muñoz proposes design as a Trojan horse to infiltrate information in the domestic realm. This collection is the result of a deconstructive design dynamic in which concept and context are driving forces for exploration and for the definition of our domestic objects’ morphology.
