“The human urge to modify itself has been a primary focus of my collaborative work with Laurel Roth. We have worked together on installations examining the utopian ideals promised by the pharmaceutical industry and recreational drug culture.

This series of chandelier sculptures drips with sparkling hypodermic needles, garlands of Swarovski crystal, and colorful gelatin capsules. Viewed from beneath they create colorful mandalas on which to meditate on one’s relationship to pharmaceuticals. The beauty of the object from a distance and the repulsion of the individual elements upon closer inspection create the tension that reflects our culture’s schizophrenic relationship to drugs.”
