Various found wood composite materials, overhead projectors, sugar, various size, 2016
As overdoses of radioactivity cause uncontrolled cellular growth,
nuclear medicine for example uses radioactive sugar to detect cancer growth in bodies.
This work defines the exhibition spaces, in this case the building of the TU Berlin as a social architectural organism.
Meandering compositions out of found wood/glue boards,
used composite materials found on the streets of Berlin, are crawling through the space.
They have been cut free hand into spontanious, uncontrolled shapes and connected
into the space over multiple slots, spontaniously arranged in reaction to the building.
The pieces are finally tagged with projections of sugar fluids in reference to the the cancer's sugar addiction, which gets utilized during the PET scan in nuclear medicine to detect metastases.
PET was part of
Clouded Lands, an art show in collaboration with FOOD OF WAR commemorating the Chernobyl disaster and its victims.
It was part of the Cultural Programme of the International Peace Bureau World Congress 2016 in Berlin.
Participating artists were Hernan Barros, Omar Castaneda, Simone Mattar, Zinaida Lihacheva, Quintina Valero, Anne Duk Hee Jordan, Tomas Espinoza, Leonhard Hollmann and Christoph Medicus at Technische Universität (TU) Berlin, Straße des 17. Juni 135, Berlin, Germany
