Drowning The Mouth Breathers ———– is part of a larger, ongoing project called The Mouth Breathers, a group of nonhumans created to reveal the failures inherent in our technological relationships. Through the recognition of these failures, we are able to redefine success in a technological world too focused on innovation to see its impacts on society. Debuting at AC Institute, RYAN WURST’S multimedia installation forces The Mouth Breathers into a perpetual act of inhalation in order to awaken us to the emptiness of the technological vacuum that we live in.
