The installation is based on a phenomenological research, this research was conducted within a pig slaughterhouse. The observations Amrith de Zoete made are translated through materials and techniques from the slaughterhouse he worked in. Repurposing these materials for an eye to eye encounter with its care taker. The shape of the sculpture is based on a twelve legged toy seen in the stables. The pig toy functions as a diversion and reduces aggressive behaviour such as ear and tail biting.

The installation invites the viewer to reevaluate the current food production methods through materials, techniques and behaviour.
