In situ at Maison des arts de Laval.
Site specific installation of two cryogenic vials of human osteosarcoma cell types (U-2 OS, SAOS-2). Laser-etched sheet acrylic box with magnifying lens reclaimed from an Atlantic lighthouse. These two cryogenic vials contain cell types that I experimented with in tissue engineering experiments. They also correspond with the work, Sonya + Osanna, as the two cell types represented in that work. This work is installed in the gallery with the box filled with dry ice containing the cryogenic vials. Eventually the dry ice evaporates and the frozen cells thaw, expiring during the course of the exhibition.
