Jocelyne Prince

Blood Work (2000-2003)

Installation

Glass

26x100x180cm

As an artist who approaches the process of art making in a manner much inspired by the methodology of science I looked to the aestheticization of the electron microscope image for consideration. In Blood Work I simulate the function of imaging by using the language of the aesthetic and the formal (color, shape, composition) to neutralize content. In this same (scientific) spirit of artistic license, I have assembled a three dimensional battle of mutant shapes that is first and foremost a fictionalized and aestheticized reconstruction of an electron microscope image of red and white blood cells fighting a virus/bacteria.
