Degenerative Imaging is a series of light-activated, glow-in-the-dark vinyl cut-outs made in reference to commercially
produced star and planet stickers. Rather than the cosmos, the artist’s source material comes from 3D SPECT scan renderings
of the degenerative effects of mind-altering substance use on the blood flow and metabolism of the human brain.
The representational language of neuroscience, or at least the populist aesthetic familiar in health and pharmaceutical
advertising, is reformatted here as a mechanism to enhance altered states while viewing their supposed biological
effects on the brain. The prints are charged by fluorescent light once every 30 minutes, causing them to glow strongly
and slowly fade, glow and fade; static
time-based mediums on repeat.
