___Meat Market is an interactive sound installation featuring meat that ‘dances’ in response to environmental stimuli. The term ‘meat market’ is an international English expression describing bars/ nightclubs in which there is an overt sexual agenda often expressed by the explicit dress code of patrons. In this work, Healy highlights the prevailing cultural attitudes towards both meat consumption and human sexuality. She explores her doubts about the ethics of eating animals and the way sexuality is presented and appreciated.
