Inscapes, 2010-11

Inscapes is a series of 14 microscope slides, each containing a specimen from the human body. Each slide is layered with a fragment of poetic text. It is conceived of, simultaneously, as a sculpture, sonnet, and unbound book. In order to read the text, the viewer must focus down through the specimen to the text and back up again. The film included below gives an approximate sense of this experience.
