Bra Machine is a fictional teaching aid designed to instruct adolescent boys to overcome the intricacies of opening the brassiere. When initiated, the machine demonstrates the principles of both clasp disengagement and brassiere removal. Following a short pause, the machine then re-secures the bra ready for the next demonstration. The project was originally inspired by accounts of repressive post-war institutionalised sex education, but is meant to serve as a future artifact, demonstrating an obsolete behaviour brought about by developments in bio-technology and plastic surgery.
