The human urge to modify itself is the focus of my collaborative work with Andy Diaz Hope. We have worked together on installations examining the utopian ideals promised by the pharmaceutical industry and recreational drug culture.

Chandeliers dripping with sparkling hypodermic needles, swarovski crystal, and colorful garlands of gelatin capsules hang above the viewer, highlighting the pursuit of a beautiful ideal, which may involve unintended consequences. Viewed from beneath they create colorful mandalas on which to meditate on ones relationship to pharmaceuticals.
