Department: Contextual Design


What: Exploring ways to procreate through objects rather than biology.

Why: Do we still need to rely on biology to secure our continued existence? Mass media already extends our influence far beyond the physical, so why not take this a step further? Anh does this in a new survival strategy that challenges the idea of reproduction and the individual.

How: With mass-produced objects that can be easily replicated, Ahn aims to spread his identity far and wide. How? By releasing 3,000 balloons of his face and dragging a plaster portrait of himself across the street. With a bed built from copies of his head he even invades the act of conception itself.

“What’s your new survival strategy?”
