THE BUD EATER, 2023
A COLLABORATION WITH TOTH LAB™️with the guidance of Nicole Molle
Towards a future of an overpopulated, foraging world. Where humans lose autonomy and natural object posess decision making qualities.
The Bud Eater forages.
It lives in a future world, where humans rely on objects and excess machines to make decisions for them. Especially food decisions, where a future food fiction involves maintaining overpopulation of mass humans. How would the world feed these humans? The human loses all autonomy in such circumstances.

This piece was made with Found Head Steamer, Soapstone, Metal Rod, Circuits, Theremin, Moss.
Illustration of the Theremin Circuit:
The bud is the orange tail fitted with a theremin that makes noises as things approach it.
Object oriented autonomy to become perceptory tools of what the human does not posses.
IMPORTANCE OF ROCKS:
- Rocks are endless
- Inside rocks are initially where water was found- so they are natural vessels.
- They will never cease to exist
