WORK IN PROGRESS PART THREE


hundreds of bodies

When I try to imagine the hundreds, thousands of bodies at Hart Island, I picture figure upon figure buried there. So using some unpainted HO figures I have encapsulated them in an glass jars to represent the ground where they are placed. Although in actuality they all are in pine coffins, it was important to me that we actually see people, and therefor placed as such. But something was missing, bones. After searching and searching the internet and brick and mortar stores for tiny bones to also incorporate, I resourcefully used some modeling clay and made some. They will be added along with the bodies... more to come soon.
