The Fruitfly Farm is Laura Beloff's second piece in the same series as The Head, a "wearable sculpture" with a connection to the internet, a camera and a public access via sms. The both pieces have a similar technical structure, which is accessible for the audience via mobile phones.
But while The Head is observing outwards the surrounding society, the Fruitfly farm observes a full society in small scale -the fly nest. Both works address the society and surrounding environment as the their theme. The fact that they are wearables allows them to "live" among their audience.
