The domicile of invisible processes
HSC year: 2011, ARTEXPRESS year: 2012
Expressive form: Sculpture
The domicile of invisible processes reflects the source of bodily composition – cell structure, DNA – as well as disease and medical processes. This expresses my personal story, living with Crohn’s disease and anemia – conditions that would be much more severe without the microscopic healing processes that take place within my body. My aim is to recognise the overwhelming complexity and capability of the human body, as well as the fragility of genetic information. Plant roots represent DNA structure and growth, colours symbolise cells, and translucency is emblematic of looking through, as if viewed under a microscope.
Influencing artist: Janet Laurence
