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 2017, the babies turn 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 15 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 or "sending off". Letter to the Artist.
