ArtPrize 8 will mark my third time participating in this international competition. I will be exhibiting work built over the past 4 years. Mikros is my visualization of what I tend to think of as the good guys vs the bad guys. How is it that something as microscopic as pollen can cause so much misery on a seasonal basis? And what is with those leucocytes / white blood cells. One day they are attacking and fighting off influenza and the next day they become a rogue army attacking my joints, in a disease known as rheumatoid arthritis. It frustrates and yet fascinates me that I'm am controlled by the microscopic.
My work will be in a group show at Western Michigan University- Grand Rapids. It will open on 9/21, but close 10/21, several weeks after the rest of ArtPrize closes.
