"allegory," (incomplete, assemblage sculpture) february 2013.
i did most of the work on this piece while in quarantine for a week after my radioactive iodine dose, a component of my treatment for thyroid cancer. work still needs to be completed on the outside casing.
each of the specimen tins contain something i've consumed or collected, such as incense ash or paper ephemera, and ultimately comprises a sort of material autobiography. some of the contents have been paired logically, others intuitively. each echoes an aspect of my personal experience but also other structures and one another.
there are eleven more detail images ( behind the cut. )
