Regine from WMMNA (I love their newish form logo/search box) went to Wim Delvoye’s latest installation of his Cloaca series where he was showing off his newest model, “Mini Cloaca.” Delvoye’s machines take food, grind it up, add it to a slurry of digestive juices, and make—more or less—shit. While previous models were almost industrial-sized, the Mini consumes about as much food as a breakfast meal.
I would love to have a Mini Cloaca on my desk, invite people in for meetings, and then activate the machine after they find something I find distasteful. Then I would open the trap door.
