We already value the milk, the meat, the skin as well as other parts of the cow. But there are parts of the cow that hold no apparent human value. With a strong interest in making use of the unused, Kathrine Barbro Bendixen has found a ”second life” for the unloved innards of the cow.

We already value the milk, the meat, the skin as well as other parts of the cow. But there are parts of the cow that hold no apparent human value. With a strong interest in making use of the unused, Kathrine Barbro Bendixen has found a ”second life” for the unloved innards of the cow – the intestines. This piece is one of many light sculptures in the project Inside Out which is an examination of this organic waste material. The project is a visual exploration of the endless possibilities and qualities of a material that has strength, versatility, transparency and natural glue. The acrylic tubes both emphasize the characteristics of the intestines natural shape as well as add a contrast to its organic state and the LED-lights at the end of them underlines the unmistakable beauty of an often disgusted material.
