Installation detail of Vicuals, University of Iowa Hospitals, 2016    






Victuals, looks at various forms of sustenance, both natural and artificial.  In this work a central apparatus that dispenses electricity, air and water sustains various “specimens”.  In one flask a peristaltic pump dispenses a very small amount of water every 3 hours to a seed mixture in a dirt mixture, while a LED light illuminates the dish.   In another flask a glowing 3D printed entity “breathes” with air supplied from the central apparatus.   In third flask floating in mineral oil an artificial life form glows with light and emits chirping sounds while sustained by an electrical umbilical cord. Images shown are from "Concinnity Exhibition" at The University of Iowa Hospital.
