Oral Fixations 2002 - 2017

Oral Fixations (2002 - ) is an ongoing body of work that crosses disciplinary borders between art and dentistry. Drawing from dual education and training, I borrow dental techniques, technologies, and biomaterials – from stem cell research to Botox injections – and incorporate them into sculptures, photographs, videos, and performances. These works represent open-ended explorations that investigate new ways of incorporating biological media traditionally limited to scientific research or clinical practice, and merge them with contemporary new media art discourse. The process highlights the ongoing challenges of engaging in substantive, robust, and meaningful interdisciplinarity between Art and Science.
