Unsustainable Creatures, solo installation at PØST, Los Angeles. August 2009.
Unsustainable Creatures is an ongoing project begun in 2009 in response to an invitation to make work for a night club in Padova, Italy. The location was flanked by a recycling facility, and it was a logical starting point for sourced materials that could be illuminated by optical fibers and LEDS. The first piece was this pig, and the single works have developed into multiple groupings and re-configurations of life-size domesticated animals.
