Guinness Record - largest artwork made from used batteries
02.02.2017 Tartu, Estonia
What happens when you pick up a phone call from an unknown number...
We made it - together with my first course sculpture students from Tartu Art (College Pallas University of Applied Arts) - Andreas Tukmann, Karin Kivisild, Olger Lehtsaar, Maarit Mälgi, Elise Rohtaas, Matthias Tiidelepp and Richard Lätt,
and colleague Rasmus Eist. Our thanks to Maarja Eskla, Merilin Aleinik, Gloria Kivask and Pirjo Põim.
The largest battery mosaic is 25.25 m² (271 ft² 113 in²) and was created by Euronics, Tartu Art College's Department of Sculpture (Pallas University of Applied Arts) and Royal Experience (all Estonia) in Tartu, Estonia, on 2 February 2017.
This record was achieved with the collaboration of Lehari Kaustel, Royal Experience's creative director.
The mosaic was used to launch an expansion of the Euronics store and more than 10 art students helped put together the display. All the batteries had been used and taken from Euronics' own recycling banks which they collect in stores. For us, it was a project that kept in mind that old batteries need care. Take them to the recycling centre or supermarket collection point. Let's keep the Earth clean.
