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. Meandering compositions,
free hand cut outs of composite
materials, found on the streets, are crawling
through the exhibtion space. The pieces are
finally tagged with projections of sugar fluids,
in reference to the cancer's sugar addiction,
which gets utilized during the PET scans in
nuclear medicine, to detect and locate metastases
in the body.
PET was part of
Clouded Lands, an art show in collaboration with FOOD OF WAR commemorating the Chernobyl disaster and its victims.
