Futilitarian

This installation explores the conceptualization of the body as a factory.  In particular it focuses on bodily cycles related to human reproduction and presents them as absurd, playful parodies of industrial production.  One of the primary concerns of Futilitarian is the lack of control over our own bodily functions.  We did not build the factory.  We did not decide what it would produce.  The body factory blissfully churns out products that (to someone not trying to reproduce) are completely useless and merely accumulate unused and unwanted on the floor, a supply with no demand.  If we chose to, we could intervene; the delicate strings that hold up the organs could easily be clipped.  But all of the systems are interconnected, even those beyond the walls and ceiling that we are not privy to; any interference might throw the entire body into a state of trauma.
