A staircase leads to a network of three scaffolding towers, each of which hosts a 3-D printer. A nod to the factory of the future, the 3-D printers output objects throughout the course of the exhibition. One produces a model forklift pallet, echoing the pallets used to craft the caves; another prints usable pieces of hardware, while a third produces a prosthetic element in reference to an absent body. These stations are connected by a system of catwalks suspened fourtenn feet over the ground, a stomach-churning prospective that evokes both the spectacle and precarity of the dematerielized econmy.
