You Can Buy Hamburgers on the Internet for a Hamburger Sculpture in Berlin

September 27, 2013 | Kyle Chayka

Artists Anthony Antonellis (the one with the RFID chip implant) and Kim Asendorf (the one who launched GIFs into space) eat food, just like us.

As part of an exhibition for Berlin’s Art Hack Day — an internet-based nonprofit dedicated to “hackers whose medium is art and artists whose medium is tech” — artists Kim Asendorf, Andreas Nicolas Fischer, Sebastian Schmieg, Anthony Antonellis and Nora O Murchú, are working together on a crowd-sourced project that “explores the relationship between food art and crowd sourced participation.”

For the period of twenty-four hours, anyone who visits this website can contribute to a temporary artwork by purchasing a hamburger or a veggie burger that will subsequently be added to a temporary sculpture. Anyone who contributes to the project will later be acknowledged as a contributor to the project on the website.
