Acupuncture for Temporal Fruit
Acupuncture for Temporal Fruit
Acupuncture for Temporal Fruit is comprised of one to twelve identical units, suspended from the gallery ceiling. Each computer-assisted unit contains a tomato, electric motors, acupuncture needles, and sonar devices.

"Here, an instrument of healing (acupuncture) is rendered as something sinister, and this calls to mind many of the ironies of contemporary health care. These machines have the look of rational science about them, but also bear a great deal of emotional content surrounding torture, pain, death, and sex."
