These kinetic sculptures could be a very cool reference for the birdhouses and also for elements of the Skynests. These could be like BodyMods for buildings, where the buildings themselves are almost alive and functioning on their own – with strange organic junk sculptures that do things like power elevator-like conveyor belts.
“The Rise of PIM
In 1990 as the Population Boom hit Palomar City, supplying food to masses became increasingly difficult, particularly for the street-dwellers. A blackmarket for cheaply-imported and smuggled grain started new violent clashes and power struggles. In response, the City and Federal Government started a plan to create the cheapest possible regulated foodstuf. This was Protein Infused Meal, PIM, a tofu-like substance which could be eaten raw or cooked. This spawned an industry overnight. From street sales to fine dinging PIM is the foundation of everyone’s daily lives. PIM also successfully destroyed the food-smuggling industry, but made the city dependent on Government subisdized food.”
