Made of pig skin, human bones, and electronics, it's like an exoskeletal medical lesson. Like a physical system, unzipped and turned inside-out.
I like this analog-digital hybrid form for a bunch of reasons, but I really like that it opens up the animality of the body-machine. I've written about body horror elsewhere here—and this is a revealing look at the ways we hide the mundane facts of our physical processes, especially that of drool—of spilled fluids, messy processes, lack of control. (Edit: Isn't it interesting that drool holds none of the transgressive appeal of blood, urine, other body fluids?)
