On the occasion of the FUTURAMA LAB's presence in the Impact Academy, the artist Rainer Prohaska arranged 6 objects from the 'Endless Toykit Collection' in the entrance area of the building to form an entrance portal.
 
With the sub-title 'Limitation of the fairway', the installation refers to our limited scope for action or intelligence and how we can strategical overcome this.

The 'ENDLESS TOYKIT COLLECTION' has been built up and compiled by the artist Rainer Prohaska over the last 20 years. This pool of materials consists of over 1000 singular 'Ready Made' modules, which the artist repeatedly arranges into new, varying installations.
 
The final results of these installations are 'Samples' which are consisting of these 'Ready Made' modules.
 
From small wooden profiles via inflatable elements to objects with several cubic meters, there are very different 'singular' manifestations, which ultimately combine in the final arrangement to form an overall picture.
 
The 'ENDLESS TOYKIT COLLECTION' sees itself as an ecological art concept, as the collection is occasionally expanded to include objects, but nothing has to be thrown away or disposed of. An endless chain of recycling processes that neither produces waste nor promotes the consumption of products.
