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. 

A found head steamer is fitted with a rock that beeps around when pushed by a human. 

This piece was made with Found Head Steamer, Soapstone, Metal Rod, Circuits, Theremin, Moss.

THE BUD: 




The bud is the orange tail fitted with a theremin that makes noises as things approach it. 

CONCEPT DOCUMENTS


RESEARCH:

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
