The Secrete series of photographs revolves around ideas of a future where we will have engineered our bodies to secrete materials that are both desirable and functional. Think of how an oyster secretes its shell or a spider secretes a web. Many organisms make essential use out of what they produce physically. Right now, most of what we secrete as humans (aside from those things that can easily be decorated such as hair and nails) we immediately swab, cut, or wash off. But, what if we could engineer our bodies to create materials that wouldn’t be perceived as waste? What kinds of implements would be created to collect these products? Would they be integrated into our domestic architecture and how?
