INSTALLATION IN A VALISE (CAUSE & EFFECT)
Installation in a Valise, (Cause and Effect) is an itinerant museum. A scale replica of a triceratops skull on a pedestal and behind stanchions recalls the natural history museum's propensity for singling out the rare. Covered in a rich black glaze that is reminiscent of oil this skull has become a fetish. The "cause", a gold covered T-rex tooth, sits across in the case in a display much like a valuable jewel would be presented. The "effect" is the notch in the frill of the skull denoting a prehistoric battle.
