MEATSPACE is an extended metaphor rooted in the phenomenological discussion between real and virtual interfacing. By redrawing the distinctive line in this contemporary epistemology, rather, between the corporeal (of the flesh) and psychic (of the mind), Gallucci interpolates moments of tension, potential and mimesis in everyday life. With his frantic production ethic and broad toolbox of visual strategies, Gallucci's MEAT SPACE encourages a re-examination of human relationships to everyday environments and objects in terms of the emotional and physical capacity of the viewer or user to be present and reactive.
