porous boundaries – mammalian motherhood, biotechnologies and other entanglements

Just finished up an article writing about my propositional large scale installation. One day I hope to install it – but it requires a lot of wall and ceiling space.

Abstract: This paper outlines my current sculptural research project in which the lives and deaths of dairy cows are entangled with multiple biotechnologies. My propositional sculptural installation brings together extant works such as fleshlumps, boobscape and slink, and new works, to represent the dairy industry, multi species nurturing, the environmental impacts of animal agriculture and the biotech innovations of in-vitro meat and bio-fabricated leather. These works are linked together by a web of interconnected fluids; urine, milk and blood.   In this new work I hope to make the links between the diary industry and these extended concerns visible and visceral.
