This work seeks to explore making as a vehicle for understanding contamination as an analogy for intoxication. The aim is to develop viscerally affective models followed by drawings that convey the porous, vulnerable qualities the human body has in common with the ground and with plants. Material testing yielded four operational categories: absorption, infiltration, dissolution, and uptake. These operations were applied to analytical representations of precedents of ‘other’ spaces, platforms for blurring one’s boundaries, from western history and science fiction.
