Part of the ongoing artistic research project On-Trade-Off 'Tesla Crash', made by Jean Katambayi, Sammy Baloji, Daddy Tshikaya is a handmade 1:1 model of the notorious Tesla Model S in copper wire using a special weaving technique inspired by miniature wire car toys made by children in DR Congo.

Reenacting a spectacular experiment with a selfmade Tesla coil, the performative act 'Charging Tesla Crash', developed in collaboration with Marjolijn Dijkman, returned to the utopian ideas of Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) about wireless and available energy for everyone around the globe. The performance reflects the so called 'green energy revolution' and global inequalities present today.
