"Lustful hunger" by Fabio Sabatino

Electronic Fruits Lamp it is a lamp made with tubes, plastic bottles, electric cables and pieces of electronic boards; it could be defined as a creation that 'sheds light' on the close and delicate correlation between nature and waste. Electronic Fruits Lamp, the work of Giorgia Smith, a New York artist, is also one of the winners of the international painting and design competition 'Waste in search of an author' organized by the association Salerno in Art. The prize went to her Ecolight for the best work created with the use of waste from electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE).

The prize 'Waste in search of the author', centered on the theme 'Eat art so as not to eat waste', it also included the painting and design sections. The first was won by 'Lustful Hunger' of Fabio Sabatino: a work that encourages reflection on waste. The author explained his painting thus: “The protagonist eats her hair-hat, following today's trend of dressing up with food. This figure embodies the antimite of waste, of unbridled consumption, of the omnivorous desire to devour and discard everything, even clothing, in a sensational waste that is not at all suited to such a serious climate of deprivation ".

In the design section, the first prize was awarded ex aequo to two works: 'Ufo-boite' of Vincenzo Liguori and Sabrina Raimondi is 'Appletime' by the Brazilian artist Josè Paulo de Moraes. The first is a table lamp made with objects from the kitchen world, such as cutlery and food containers. “There are no scraps or fragments of the starting objects; our lighting was precisely the idea of ​​using the objects in their entirety in order to give them an absolutely different intended use from the original one. The various objects used are all made of recyclable materials, such as glass and aluminum, thus placing our creation within a new life cycle with infinite future possibilities for transformation and reuse ", the authors explained.

The other winning work, 'Appletime', is made with cardboard and an old clock and represents an original apple, "A fruit used a lot as a symbol in industry, but above all remembered as a healthy food and which - as the old saying goes - keeps the doctor away", has explained Josè Paulo de Moraes. Thus, the clock finds space inside the apple, signifying the close relationship between time and healthy lifestyles.

The other winners are: Donato Landi (Municipality of Salerno award), Luke the Evangelist (Legambiente award), Anonymous Neapolitan (design critics' award), Pasquale Mastrangelo (critics' prize in the painting section), Roberta Lazzarato (Luciana Marciano award). Plaques of merit were delivered to Donato Landi, Antonio Maresca, Vito Ungaro, Roberta Lazzarato, Nunzio Adamo, Marina Poletto Tosato, Lavinia Ceccarelli, Gavino Pedoni, Barbara Belliotti and Filippo Staiano.

The theme 'Eat art so as not to eat waste', has engaged the artists in an important reflection. Among the more than 100 works presented, the jury struggled to choose those to be selected for the final phase.
