Josh Kline Skittles 2014

  • Not on view

Fifteen different smoothie flavors line the shelves of Kline’s light box–encased commercial refrigerator. Each bottle lists the unorthodox ingredients contained within, including latex gloves, octopus ink, Ritalin, and fragments of Google Glass eyewear. These high-tech materials, synthetic chemicals, and organic substances evoke specific locations as well as contemporary lifestyles, industries, and brands. With titles like “Big Data” and “Supplements,” the indigestible “drinks” in this glowing cooler make plain the ways in which our bodies have been engineered, chemically altered, and transformed by technologies of consumption.
