Mega Pathogen (1997 & 2007)
Pumpkins, glass, duct tape, trucking tie downs
Using the structural/construction idea of the scientific model (twist ties, Styrofoam chips, ping pong balls?) - and the authority invested in these models; a 3D model of a fictional disease is created. Material/object selections where made to underline personal artistic and aesthetic choices. The use of "natural" multiple and the hand-made multiple are in contrast to the standard and measurable sameness of the industrial multiples.
