Meat Fridge V1

Meat Fridge V1

Part tactile with acrylic-cut body parts encased in glittery, pink slime in the "freezer"; part commentary with the risograph printed, hand-cut book in the "fridge." Meat Fridge correlates the objectification of female body parts to that of cold-cuts and raw meat: seasoning, treating, tenderizing, etc.

Engraved acrylic; two-color risograph, hand-cut,

spiral-bound.

Meat Fridge V2

Meat Fridge V2

The second iteration of Meat Fridge is a smaller, archival, and reproducible version of its predecessor. Replacing the slime in the "freezer" are multiple laser-cut acrylic body part pieces. The risograph printed, hand-cut book in the "fridge" is reprinted on bright yellow and pink paper instead of pastel pink and blue. Meat Fridge correlates the objectification of female body parts to that of cold-cuts and raw meat: seasoning, treating, tenderizing, etc.

Engraved acrylic; two-color risograph, hand-cut,
