Obsolete - Machine no. 1 is developed to resemble a demonstrative device as would be commonly seen in science or natural history museums. In this case, the work mechanically displays the engineering principles of a brassiere. When initiated the machine demonstrates the principles of both clasp disengagement and brassiere removal. Following a short pause the machine then re-secures the bra ready for the next demonstration.
Purposefully didactic and comedic in its expression, the work is inspired by accounts of repressive post-war institutionalized sex education, but is conceived as a museum artefact from the future, demonstrating an obsolete behaviour brought about by developments in genetic engineering and plastic surgery.
