 Eating Machine

Xiong Congxiao (CN)

Eating Machine explores the relationship between humans and machines when machines possess or surpass human-like capabilities. Through an activity—eating—that is useless for machines but irreplaceable for humans, the work presents a deliberately absurd scenario and raises questions about the uniqueness of human experiences, asking whether it is still necessary for humans to engage in firsthand activities when machines can perform them better.
