(detail)

"WinWin is a video/audio work that presents the opposing poles of order and disorder, as well as controller and controlled, in the form of an interactive experience. Based on imagery of nano-particle dynamics that are shown on the surface of a biomorphic sculpture, WinWin returns to the biotechnology interests of my work from the late 1980s."
