Artist Statement:


    Exclusion Zone is an interactive installation that explores the concept of toxic subjectivity. Three lab tables with microscopes reside on a map representing radioactive fallout from the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear plant explosion.

    The map is printed on a 17-foot x 12-foot laminated rubber floor surface. Each table contains a tray of glass, specimen slides containing miniature narratives about the artist’s thyroid cancer, and radiation treatments to be read through the microscopes.
