cast human bones, test tube, kodalith, plastic fly, wiring, digital clock, chain, brush, sand

The sand was mixed with cellulose glue so this could hang on a wall, but you still were able to use the brush to reveal more bones. Originally the test tube contained live brine shrimp. There was a lot of maintenance involved with this, especially because the shrimp wouldn't last more than a day or two. The salt water also dissolved the image off the kodalith, most likely making this a mutually destructive relationship. I regrettably had to replace the shrimp with a plastic fly.
