SVALKA*

With SVALKA entering our latitude we can now turn our homes into SVALKA. As an excuse and to appease ourselves we have come up with the idea that smashed plates bring good luck. Worth a mention that broken glass is not recycled. Because of  such thinking and without much hartache, an unbelievable amount of resources ends up in SVALKA, where none it will be recycled. By applying this process useless extravagance, the authors have created an installation that for the duration two months will destroy SVALKA wine glasses and slowly recycle them into the essence of 100% happiness.
