PROJECT: Biopsy (Colon, Sepsis, Growth, and Tumor)   Note: This series explores ways to represent aspects of a failing body, and methods of making a viewer think of the human body without showing a literal body. As well as, experiments with how far to push found materials to achieve a tenuous amount of suspension of disbelief, while maintaining a degree of artifice.   Materials: Acrylic, latex, denim, lace, rubber, wood, glass, plastic.   Scale: varied, but roughly 13" x 13" x 6".
