A machine that is capable of producing sterile goldfish in an automated reenactment of Yamaha-Sensei’s movements and actions. Physically articulating this fabrication process, its mechanisation allows for the standardisation of both sequence and animal.
A contraption with its own (dormant) choreography, the machine is an assembly line, a printer, a puppet master, a potential.
