suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
The LADG (Andrew HOLDER, Claus Benjamin FREYINGER, & James CHESTNUT): Consider, as a problem of material and form, a litter of piglets suckling at the teats of a plump sow. The language of formal analysis is not readily equipped to describe this situation. The disposition of one pig against another does not appear to be regulated by clear systems of repetition and adjacency. The pig bodies themselves resist decomposition as assemblages of skin and structure; they are too fat—all fat, in fact. What formal analysis struggles to rationalize, the languages of character and posture easily accommodate: the piglets nestle and suckle; the sow sprawls; obese bodies squeeze and abut one another.
