working at the confluence of art & ecology


THE PETRI SERIES: BENZENE (2013) is the first installation in this series that examines petrochemicals and their impact on human and environmental health.  It is a human-powered photo-sculptural installation that is activated by the participant. Using microscopic images of cancer cells printed and mounted on circular plexiglass, they are embedded in petri dishes sitting in stainless steel forms in the shape of benzene molecules.  The mechanism is in the form of a car that generates electricity to light up the cell images.
