Dry Rotting Bodies is an ongoing investigation of how bodies produced through recursive technical processes are underlaid by actual human emotions and corporeal specificities. The exhibition incorporates a series of recorded experimental texts shaped through a recursive looping process within which a syrupy female voice repetitively describes various visceral sensations, carnal interactions and obsessive mental states.
References to eating, digesting, and the sharing of fluids within the work are used as a form of channeling the protean corporality of language (both written and vocal) in tandem with technology’s synthetic materiality. The project also makes use of the conceptual slip between parasite and prosthesis to sculpturally frame how an abjection towards the female body becomes entangled within the ways in which language and technology are gendered.
