Full Description

A banner is attached to a building. "Recyclez votre Appel +33 (0) 63 27 22 06 5" (Recycle your call) is printed on the banner. Several antennas are installed inside a room in the building. The antennas are able to register microwaves released by mobile phones. When a visitor makes a call with his mobile phone within the room or when +33(0)632722065 is called directly, the energy resulting from the call is registered and reused. While calling light emitting diodes light up. These LEDs are affixed to the antennas and also connected to an opto-electronic relay with light cables. The opto-electronic relay is placed in an opaque cardboard box together with a breather and a mobile phone. A plastic bottle is stuck head first in the box. A down feather is placed within the bottle neck. The bottom of the bottle is cut off. When the breather begins to blow the down feather starts to hover. The breather can be activated in two ways: 1. When a visitor makes a call with his mobile phone within the room, the antennas register the microwaves. LEDs light up. These light signals are led to the opto-electronic relay by light cables. 2. When +33(0)632722065 is called directly, the display of the mobile phone within the cardboard box lights up. In both cases the light signal is registered by the opto-electronic and thus activates the breather. The discharged air is pushing the down feather from the bottle neck into the bottle and causes it to hover. The movement of the down feather indicates how the released microwaves are being recycled.
