Beetle Wrestler, 2008
In collaboration with Natalie Jeremijenko and Leigha Dennis


A device to wrestle with the STRONGEST ANIMAL IN THE WORLD: the rhinoceros beetle. This device includes a head-and-body mounted display that equips humans with the appendages required to interact (with the males at least). In addition it scales us and our forces to the beetle proportions granting us similar manipulative capacities and even playing field; an architecture of reciprocity.
