Mole Countertops

    Thursday, May 16, 1996 to Saturday, June 1, 1996


    Mole Countertops is a series of eight colour photographs which are integrated into sculptures based on cosmetic kiosks. Photographic images of moles (or beauty marks) were scanned into the computer and stretched into the shapes taken from cosmetic kiosks. These shapes are taken from the joins, corners or curves of the modules that have been assembled to form the kiosks. The tension between these shapes represents the tensions, which revolves around the surfaces of our bodies in a culture where they are constantly checked for signs of age, blemish or disease.
