14.5x18 plated torso sculpture composed by 15x100 mm sealed Petri dishes, 40 in total (20 front and back). Petri dishes are held together by long twine cords that extend beyond 18 inches from the bottom and top rows.
Each plate is sealed and contains a degraded mixture of 5% sheep blood agar, a nutrient that is used to grow the bacteria and fungi within the mixture. The bacteria and fungi have become contained dead residue, which can be seen through the transparent acrylic plates.
This piece was exhibited in the solo show "Por los siglos de los siglos" at Wedge Space Houston Community College in 2019.
