Solid marble cube and adipometer (12x12x12cm)
Pinned by an adipometer - a calliper used to estimate the amount of internal fat by measuring the thickness of a fold of skin - the white geometric shape reveals a body surplus. The relationship between the rational form and the excess indicates the interface between rational thinking and profit. The accumulation of the economic surpluses through processes of rationalization / colonization. In the wake of Oiticica's thoughts - "Purity is a myth" - and Foucault - "there is no policy that is not a policy of the body" - everything that surrounds us is mediated by the body, devoured by our senses, and goes through a anthropophagic organicity process.
