Hair and Bug Bone Balls

Sculpture | Mixed Media

Hair and Bug Bone Balls consists of three mixed media sculptures incorporating liquid latex mixed with Saos-2 cells, insects, human and synthetic hair. The works comment on the uncanny nature of cell culture and particularly the artist’s experiences culturing Soas-2 (human bone cancer) and SF9 (armyworm larvae) cells.
