FEeD

This project started with me looking at the attachment formed through feeding, starting my research initially throughout the realms of breastfeeding and there effects on attachment.  Culturally, physically and mentally. In doing this research I found the topic becoming too heavy and felt I was leaning towards making a statement for breastfeeding that I did not believe in. I started thinking along the lines of, ‘an attachment will be made however you feed as long as you feed’….

Wanting to lighten the concept and taking note of the reactions of amusement I was getting from my experimental sculptures I started looking at the idea of a machine that went everywhere but nowhere, wasn’t capable of anything but connected me to everything.

This project has taken me down a direction that came solely from experimentation.

The outcome being the machine is feeding me...​​​​
