Post surgery waste

We picked up the post-surgery waste that will form the base of the cryobook archive sculptures. The skin is now being chilled in the fridge so that it has a tougher surface for the leather stamp imprint that will be used to make custom designs.  Tomorrow I will prepare the lentivirus and HaCat cells and if everything goes according to plan, I will be able to make the first cryobook with human and pig skin.

Be assured that all human ethics and biosafety approval forms have been filled out and approved prior to the making of this project. I am grateful to the donor and doctor who helped make this element of the project possible. Thanks to Meredith Walsh for taking this short video document.
