Slaughter in the Skies: Manifesting atrocity

Part 2 Project 2016
Matthew Holbrook
University of the West of England, UK
The proposal manifests the mechanical, industrialised and ultimately depersonalised attitudes towards slaughter that humanity is increasingly, blindly operating. The ‘mechanical monstrosity’ of a building orchestrates a vertical slaughter-line in the sky, representing the atrocities with the contemporary slaughter system. Haunting over the centre of Bristol and hoisting the otherwise invisible taboo into the skyline, the slaughter process is displayed in a theatrically horrific spectacle.
