my players are hostile microorganisms
In my artwork, I employ living organisms. I incorporate biological materials such as mold, bacteria, and fungi as my medium to explore process of life. The micro-world, largely hidden from sight, is alluring, frightening and beautiful. The dynamic arc of life in this turbulent imperceptible world is quick and furious. Simple living organisms demonstrate all of the hallmarks of a complex and coordinated social life. They communicate and cooperate to perform a wide range of behaviors that show and metaphor human actions. The diminutive life forms harmonize to create a colorful array of actions, counter-actions and conflicts where they mimic the human conditions of social, political, economic, and environmental concerns that have affect on us. These competitive interactions and constant aesthetic themes are the basis of my studies. In this artificially constructed living platform, I am the impresario and my players are hostile microorganisms.
