invading space...

I became aware at a very early age that human life is very fragile. Our curiosity is always on the verge of killing us. My earliest inquiries came out of poolside PH tests, the ingredient list on hot dog packages, Kraft "cheese" and Jell-O. What were these things? I wondered how long would it take to create a diamond with a heating pad and stack of books and what effect hairpins might have on an electrical outlet. For the past six years images and ideas of life and death have been swirling around my head and historically I have dealt with ideas by making artwork. But this mold. This water + sheet rock. It stopped me and I thought and thought and thought (and thought and thought and thought). I still cannot quite grasp how something so simple can be so deadly. Water is the source of all life! But causes death in many different ways. So now I am studying deadly mold. There are hundreds of species of toxic mold and more and more are being discovered all the time...and I wonder how to make it right...
