Mechanische affectie // Mechanical touch

Powdercoated steel, POM/nylon gears, leather


Oftentimes the difficulty with euthanasia lies with the next-of-kin. They are often the ones who try desperately to cling to the live of their loved one. What happens when a man is barely more than a physical presence? When are all the efforts of treatments, medicine, doctors and constant postponing no longer equal to the life that is regained? All this machine does is simulate a minor caress, a mechanical affection. When comes the time you dare to let go?
