For today, I have prepared a bizarre little experiment I had in my to-do-list since the first half of last semester, Major Studio 2 with Prof. Stuart Cudlitz. It’s still a work in progress but the premise is quite clear.
Since my main focus is a Gestalt approach of fragmented narratives and how “the whole is greater than the sum of the parts (Wikipedia)”, I started thinking on Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, the story of a scientist who created life and was horrified by what he had made. Dr. Veganstein, just like Dr. Frankenstein, made a deliberate decision and accomplished fantastic results by experimenting in his laboratory.
Dr. Veganstein or The Revenge of the Vegan is a fictional tutorial explained by a radical vegan who not only feels repulsion towards the consumption of meet, his ultimate goal is to reanimate dead animals, give them the life that others ended. While still very far from achieving total resurrection, Dr. Vegan is continuously advancing, documenting his process, and letting the world know of his progress with the hope that others will join his cause.
