Mount Desert Biological Laboratory

In the spring of 2017 I was privileged to be an artist in residence at the Mount Desert Biological Laboratory, an independent nonprofit biomedical research institution.  I spent a week at the facility spending time in the labs and talking with the scientists who are working on the forefront of regenerative medical research.

This innovative project was designed to allow time and space for investigating the overlap between scientific research and the creative arts.

Ways to Read (the language of mapping)

Snake gourds, test tubes, resin, and copper.  Installed at the Mount Desert Biological Laboratory.

This installation was created after my interactions with the researchers at the labs. This piece uses the beauty of the natural forms and their lyrical, calligraphic interactions to visually explore some of the ways we read and decode our genetic history.
