Amelie Onzon chooses duck as the protagonist of her story because ducks are both easy to domesticate and very tasty. She then designed 2 furnitures and let the user decide whether they will use these furniture to produce foie gras or give their pet/ the duck a more comfortable life.
'Ducks force-feed themselves before migration. That's precisely this behaviour that inspired the foie gras. The bird is force-feed with grain and fat using a funnel until the liver expands to the right size (the organ can swell to up to 10 times its normal size.)'
- We make money not art.
|Amelie's Force Feeder is a duck feeder that doubles as a force feeding stool. The ducks bowl is also the force-feeding funnel. An irrigation system softens the food to make it edible.|
