¬The Caterpillar is an extension cable intended to engage its owner into a dialogue about wasting energy with devices in stand-by. The Caterpillar has three modes: It breathes slowly in the case of normal energy consumption by a device, such as a TV. If the TV is switched to stand-by, the Caterpillar starts to twist awkwardly, as if in pain. This can be resolved by disconnecting the TV. The Caterpillar falls asleep. It touches upon peoples tendency to take care of living things. Through its behaviour, it conveys an attitude towards the consumption of electricity and offers a simply remedy, as an act of helping. http://vimeo.com/31947435
