story unfolds through an array of connotative materials, mundane yet
fetishistic items loaded with cultural baggage:
rubber latex, carbon black, Ikea furniture, blood, Maruchan
Ramen, liquor bottles, hemp, crystals, wine, artificial fur, etc.

animal-headed rubber figure, for instance), awkward apparatuses and
assorted stashes of life residue.

is accompanied by a selection of organelles.
Metamorphic mythology, scientific day dreaming, gothic detours,
survival and making-do become key strategies.
