Social intervention has been a recurrent theme in modern and contemporary culture. Besides the political content of artworks it may be possible to use the creative process itself for a direct social effect. Adobe aims to explore the possibilities of contemporary art creation as a tool to directly influence the society. The project consists in creating the conditions for the generation of employment and a sustained environment. It consists in creating an adobe functioning café adjacent to an art venue, therefore generating some direct employment, with a direct social impact. The work can also be seen as a continuation of the artist’s involvement with the intersection of art and biology. In this case the art medium it is the human social organization.
