Some use for your broken clay pots

L'Espace culturel l'Odyssée
[La Biennale Arts Sciences],
Eybens, France

Works of science fiction give us an insight into a future civilization by telling the adventures of one of its individual inhabitants.
Some use for your broken clay pots, on the contrary, provides us with the code that rules the life of the society it imagines.

We empower an object, a person, a situation through speculation and prediction.
Like an "Experimental Magic" without magicians.
