Armin Blasbichler is an artist, architect, and educator whose studio explores designs built on “transgression and chance, conceptually and physically.” When he’s not making cross-shaped coffins and glowing nooses that spray water (both of which contain clever literary allusions), he can be found making works that critique unpleasant cultural trends, such as over-consumption in the West. That’s what his “Orson, I’m Home” series represents. Using various animals that are commonly killed and consumed (shown here: a sheep, a deer, and a pig), Blasbichler has turned their bodies into furniture pieces. The effect is unpleasant and uncanny, meant to make us consider the way our consumption practices have led to a culture of excess and objectification.
