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’ 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.
One thought on “Blood on Silk: Tufts Analytical Lab, 2014, silk paper and found objects, size variable. As installed for two and a half days in the analytical lab in the Biomedical Silk Lab at Tufts University Boston USA in late October 2014”
My partner and I absolutely love your blog and
find almost all of your post’s to be precisely what I’m looking for.
Do you offer guest writers to write content for yourself?
I wouldn’t mind producing a post or elaborating on a number of the subjects you write with regards to here.
Again, awesome website!
