Being Consumed is a Tricky Pleasure
Publication with short stories | Part of the video-installation of the same title | Graduation project 2018
Human is commodity, one for which, at the end of
the day everyone longs. When all life needs are met
by app-based systems like Uber, Foodora or Tinder, why do we not have one that covers all the functions a human has to offer? From social interaction, sexual activity or intellectual support, ending with fertility and organ donation - an individual can satisfy a whole range of needs.
The project explores the broad area of hyper-objectification. I’m inviting the visitor into a grotesque sci-fi scenario, in which a person is seen as a collection of assets and body parts and their value is determined by functionality.
