Archetype (Original Project)

In 1999 during graduate school at Syracuse University, I spent a semester casting mutant resin baby dolls, inspired by the successful cloning of Dolly the Sheep. The sculptures were used to create photograms resembling x-rays or other medical imaging. The original sculptures were never meant to be exhibited as art.

At the end of 2016, the babies turned 18. For the past 17 years, they have been locked up in the attic, so it is time they were released into the world. I asked 17 artists to choose and care for a baby for 18 days, documenting the care in photographic and video form, then celebrating its coming of age. Letter to the Artist.
