Our Machinery

In Thaïs Miller’s dark fable of apathy, self destruction, and redemption a machine is invented that converts the flesh of living human beings into a source of energy capable of powering the world. First used as a means of capital punishment, the machine is soon put to use on ‘volunteers’: the terminally ill, the disenfranchised, the starving and helpless, those who feel they could do better for the ones they love by trading their flesh for monetary compensation. And as rumors spread that death by the machine produces a euphoria beyond imagination, people begin willfully sacrificing themselves to it by the hundreds of thousands. OUR MACHINERY is the story of one woman’s attempts to stop the spread of the machine, to end the swell of suicide in the name of survival, and to find solace in a world descending more and more into amorality, hopelessness, and chaos.
