Better than Well
Within the increasingly abstract and alienating practices of contemporary health care, this project reminds us of the alternate potentials of the home in caring for, or augmenting oneself with others.
The body is understood as a political platform that can incorporate and emit information. In the context of the evolution of biopolitics and post-war technologies the ‘production’ of bodies is changing with emerging body-related practices: grinders, DIY biology, self-experimentation, nutrigenomics, gender-hacking and more generally the e-health sector. With the possibility of becoming more than human, the body is again the subject of intrigue. So what do such immediate rituals have to reveal? Can the domestic space cater for the different practices of ingestion, modification, application?
