Monstrous Vermin

Monstrous Vermin is a participatory fibers installation piece originally build for Youtopia 2019. Riffing on the Burning Man 2019 theme of “Metamorphoses” (Ovid), this piece references the first line of Kafka’s “The Metamorphosis,” which reads “Gregor Samsa awoke in his bed to discover he’d been transformed into a monstrous vermin.” Beneath a purple neon titular sign hang 5 wearable stuffed animal beetles and a pile of giant suffed animal maggots. The participant is encouraged to wear the beetles and cuddle in the maggots.
