Best before…

Enjoy By employs eggs that have been sawed in half and implanted with PIC microcontrollers and LED displays.


Each egg’s display glows through its shell indicating the number of days remaining before the egg goes bad. A pulsing dot at the bottom right of each egg’s display simulates a heartbeat. When an egg’s number of days remaning reaches 0, its display and heartbeat fade out. The piece is a comment on the increasing pervasiveness of technology.
