This installation is a vending machine that produces meat. It is a vending machine from a dystopian future. The machine has a touchscreen as human interface. On this touchscreen there will be a menu to choose the kind of meat the user wants. However, only human meat is available. All the other options will give an error. This error screen has also the option to provide an explanation of why the other meats are not available.
After this, the user has to scan his/her hand to scan his/her DNA.
This DNA will then be used to lab grow the meat. The outcome of the vending machine will be a burger, made with the DNA of the user.
For the installation itself, we will not be using real life burger, but a prop. The user will not be able to actually touch the burger. If the user tries to get the burger, the machine will shut down and reboot itself.
