This was not a public exhibition – it could only be seen by those who worked in this particular set of scientific laboratories within the silk laboratory at Tufts University Boston where they ‘.. study the use of silk as an optical material for applications in biomedical engineering, photonics and nanophotonics’  DSC_6261 This installation intervened into a process necessary and common within science, that of moving and reorganising  equipment from one space to another. In transition a stack of materials lay in the middle of the floor of the analytical laboratory This floor to ceiling installation of silk paper framed this pile of stuff refocusing on the ephemeral nature of the administrative process within the practice of the scientific method. On the last day everything had been moved on leaving a solitary Allen key within the space designated by the silk paper.DSC_6309    DSC_6295
