THE CONTAMINATION OF ALICE: INSTANCE #1

Mixed Media | Sculpture

The Contamination of Alice: Instance #1 is an extension of the Death Masks series and comments on the fungal contamination of Alice’s Saos-2 cells, during routine cell culture, in 2009.  The work references the literal infection of the cells, as well as the notion of creative contamination.  Wire clusters which were visually based on microscope images of the original infection infiltrate the gallery space and are evident in many of the individual works.
