POCKET ORGANS

DIY BIOTECH KITS

Photographs and videos on Youtube

These works imagine a future where biotechnology has become accessible to the public, and the production of small medical devices and external organs has become possible for the serious hobbyist. 


In a world where health care is a privilege but self-modification is increasingly accessible, these images explore the potential of creative self-care and medical expression. Using the pervasive cultural phenomenon of DIY present in websites and video tutorials, these works play with the line between fiction and belief.
