Mouth Factory

June 28th, 2012

Mouth Factory‘ by Cheng Guo is one of the cooler projects I’ve seen lately. Cheng has build a series of functional machines specifically designed to be operated by the mouth of the user, which includes chewing drill, teeth lathe, tongue extruder, mouth breath rotational molding and vacuum form machine.

The project explores the capabilities and versatility of this wondrous organ and correlating facial expressions, re-contextualised within the realm of production. As a comment on human enhancement, the project aims to explore the aesthetic of production through a series of performative devices. By focusing on the mouth, the production devices acquire a fantastic quality that amplifies and render visible the reciprocal relationship and effects between our body and our tools.
