Size: Dimensions varied

Medium: Artist’s blood, distilled water, hollow glass spheres (30mm) and resin.

Year: 2023

Self-Extended is composed of hundreds of sealed hollow glass spheres, each filled with varying amounts of the artist’s blood (collected with the assistance of a GP periodically over the last two years), and distilled water. Self-Extended challenges the rational physical limitations of the self by looking at the components of the body as a medium like any other. Blood carries an array of emotional and physical states within it. In Self-Extended this bodily component is held in a state of stasis, to expand the physical boundaries through space and time. The glass spheres become objects that incubate versions of the artist, allowing them to co-exist simultaneously.
