The human organism is both a collection of communicating cells and a singular, united structure responding to the environment it perceives.
Developed in response to sketches drawn from workshop experience with the late contemporary dance artist and thinker Rosemary Butcher, this work replicates the cell’s composition using recycled materials and develops physiological architectures within catalyst test sites.
The re-used components of the synthetic cell, chosen for their previous role as containers, are adapted to fit newly defined borders by the maker’s own membrane bound perceptive system.
The active nature of the process invites materials, including my own physical form, to absorb external inputs and invigorate inter-structural processes in order to make the permeability of the cellular border visible.
Space, my own recycled materials and 15 minutes of exploration time.
