Carnie : Embryonic Entities as Codes, Discourses and Anatomy

Date: Sat, 10 Mar 2007 09:36:25 -0000

I had a spell before my dialogues with scientists of making work related to scientific imaging. I had spent a couple of years previously studying zoology before moving into the arts. Among the images I made was this work called ‘Twins’. It’s reference point for me was the embryo, or two embryos in fact. ‘Twins’ never courted any negative response though I think in many ways I thought it quite disquieting. The work is a photograph of two slices of bacon.
