An Installation and performance piece that included communion wafers, wine, table, linen, inkjet prints on handmade paper, medical carts. Installed in Montpelier VT.

14x30x15 feet

Thirteen large communion wafers were placed on a long table draped with a linen cloth. In a daily performance, I poured wine from a laboratory flask onto the hosts, starting with one and increasing the number each day.  The wafers were allowed to mold and decay, literally undergoing a process of transubstantiation.

The environment surrounding the table was designed to evoke the sense of medical room or lab and also to suggest a sense of quiet contemplation more akin to religious spaces.  I made hospital style carts and charting systems to use during my performative tending of the growing molds.
