Item 1-2000, 1996, interactive installation. 600 pound wax block, live performer,
Macintosh computer, barcode scanner, 2 monitors, misc. electronics.
The work seeks to contextualize work in anatomical imaging, using the Visible Human
project as an example, with the social issues of American medicine. Participants interact
with the work through a stainless-steel barcode scanner (wielded like a scalpel), slicing
horizontally across a wax-embedded performer (laying atop a 600 pound wax block) to
reveal the hidden target organ on the room's monitors.

(described in sample work form)
Cult of the New Eve, 2000, performance and public intervention. A collaboration between
Paul Vanouse, Faith Wilding and the Critical Art Ensemble. The Cult of the New Eve
reacts to modem biotechnology as manifested in its promises of salvation by practicing a
New Eve Cult aimed to unmask the utopias. In varied performances, an intermeshing of
electronic information systems with performative theatre practice, the cult members explore
and provoke the discourse of life science.
