Life Models was an installation comprising of a SCOBY (Symbiotic Culture Of Bacterial Yeast), robot and scaffolding. In the initial weeks of the exhibition, the SCOBY slowly grew in the tank with fans rotating air around the room. The final event had a clawed crane-like mechanism come down from a platform in order to pick up the SCOBY from its vat, the SCOBY broke from the mechanism and fell back down to the tank.

 

Life Models was shown at the Barbican Arts Group Trust in a solo show in September of 2019. The mechanism was made in collaboration with Patrick Dent.
