Avian Intensive Care Unit, 2007
Medical supplies, 43×36″ silkscreen print on polycarbonate sheet, LEDs, batteries, sound

From a pile of intensive care unit medical trash emerge 15 bird figures made of intravenous components, heart electrodes, cast surgical tape, and batteries. The batteries power LED lights within the bird beaks. Suspended from above is a large silkscreen of a medical diagram of the heart with the heading Complete Repair. Ambient soundtrack of layered bird calls and intensive care unit machines.
