„cardiac Archive“

shelve (illuminated), objects
mixed media, 141,7 x 98,4 x 23,6 inch (length x height x width) 

The installation “Cardiac Archive” is made up of a cabinet with built-in lighting full of different objects and sculptures. The objects are three-dimensional variations of the “heart,” which are not anatomical models but rather sculptural approximations of a multifaceted notion. They are made of various different kinds of plastics such as laminated plastic sheets, packaging materials, straws, Styrofoam sheets, drinking straws assembled together in collages.

The cabinet/frame is the system of organization in which the different objects are stored.
