These sculptures float somewhere between science experiment and metaphor. They are made in response to (or in the shadow of, or maybe beside) research into batteries and the materials and chemistry of storing power, histories of electrification and electrical sciences, discard and waste studies, YouTube and other DIY battery building and plastic chemistry, and a detour into transcranial direct current stimulation. They don’t mean in the way that science does, and they are not quite stories.

They’ve been a useful reminder that things can change.

Works from top to bottom: Conjugated backbone crossed section, Excited systems (medical history museum), Nervous systems (light pollution), Minor Revision (lab accident)
