The Ossificatorium
ABOUT

The Ossificatorium is an intricately detailed project that includes textile, chemical and tissue-based sculpture, public intervention, creative nonfiction/ fictional narrative and digital web-based media such as a website, online GPS tracking, and .gifs. The work includes objects both displayed as biomimetic processes and abandoned in public spaces and tracked online, as well as historical/osteobiographical texts that "explain" the objects in a parallel dimension.
The work can be (and has been) encountered in a variety of contexts, either physically by accident or in a gallery, online through scanning, browsing or hyperlinking, or as artifacts of an event(s).

This project was generously supported with funding from Concordia University, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, and Hexagram | CIAM.
