2008, installation, object (138 x 138 x 20 inch) and animation (DVD)

The installation was developed based on schematic depictions of human
organs involved with digestion. Part of the installation has been mounted
in such a way that it appears to be a permanent part of the exhibition space.
The stomach digests its contents, the liver detoxifies. The organs are made
of construction materials that are covered in a skin made from everyday
packaging materials.
The second part of the installation shows an animated film in which the progress
of ingestion is shown.
