Ruins (Carcinomas) - 2011 - Installation at Eyebeam Window Gallery
Depicting fallen urban landscapes over-run with tumors, these sculptures highlight breast cancer’s links to carcinogens in our everyday environment. The grey ‘support material’ used by 3D printers to build up a form is generally meant to be removed. But we used Eyebeam’s 3D printer in such a way as to maximize the architectural form of the printer’s support structures and then hacked at the structures to partially reveal the white tumor embedded.
