Blood Work

2014
Sculpture / Installation

Blood Work is an art, medicine, and technology project which is being explored through a series of works created in various methodologies. It examines the significance of blood in all of its personal, social, political, medical, economic, religious, and material manifestations.  Further, it probes the meaning of digital materiality by considering new representations of the body within a contemporary technological context.  The work shown in this first phase uses the artist’s blood as the sample for imaging with Electron Microscopy.

I am interested in how our perceptions, understanding, and representations of form shift through technological translations from physical forms to digital forms to material art forms.
