A practical investigation into the varying effectiveness of different types of slug control to enforce the boundaries of our re-territorialized niche.
Slug'o'metrics Series: Three kinetic sculptures designed by Paul Chaney that employed progressively more complex technologies to perform the same task - the machines exacted, and simultaneously quantified, slug death in the gardens at FIELDCLUB. As each device became more accomplished in its use of diverse technologies, the user became further removed from the effective action of the device.
