Our collaboration begins by floating around the cyborg that we recognized in our own way. This is a sort of reaction to the sense of slipping on the misogynistic custom of woman who has an affective relationship with images, objects, and non-human beings.

 

Based on the gesture of « collection (la récupération) » that appears in common in each other's work methodology, we explore « Creepy YET cute » things and at the same time embody the shape of Sara Doke's Techno Fairies. Especially, it is obsessed with the boundary characteristics of Changeling (change child), which straddle the boundary between the human world and the fairy world, and combines them with a hybrid in which the two worlds of Murphy and Bernie are intertwined.

 

Women’s gestures and voices caring for reborn dolls, slow lullaby of machines that continue caring on behalf of the human body, their radical, dirty, and broken attitudes, intersecting translucency in the shape of the fetus in the glass noodles and placenta. All these contradictions create a taboo place for us to think, 'Shouldn't it be like that?’. At the same time, it adds degenerative and regressive behavior to the substances that make up them, claiming to be a hybrid to each other, and projecting the image of women who are exhausted alone.
