The Mouth Factory project implements remind of the horror dentistry tools of yesteryears. However, looking deeper into the concept you realize that these series of functional machines specifically designed to be operated by the mouth of the user, can be developed or used as research for tools that people with limited mobility can use. However the designer explains his project as thus, “project explores the capabilities and versatility of the mouth and correlating facial expressions, re-contextualized within the realm of production.”
The project includes Chewing drill, teeth lathe, tongue extruder, mouth breath rotational molding and vacuum form machines. By focusing on the mouth, the production devices acquire a quality that amplifies and render visible the reciprocal relationship and effects between our body and our tools.
