water table

Water Table, 2009
Stainless steel medical cart, medical trays, 72 cast paper birds (prescription drug receipts), cardboard boxes, 18 x 18″ screen print on polycarbonate with lightbox  60 x 42 x 54”

For Water Table, I was interested in pollutants in the water supply, particularly prescription drug refuse. I cast 72 birds out of paper and prescription drug receipts. I imagined that the birds, engulfed in the receipts, had been collected by everyday people and sent to a research lab where they were examined and their cause of death tallied.
