parasite (40°27’25”N 80°00’48”W) is a site-specific installation that alludes to contaminants and occupied territories. The architectural site becomes a “host” to elements that protrude from the walls as a metaphor to symbiotic and parasitic relationships. The work references camouflage, intrusion and disease, where both the host and its appendage transform into a new hybrid site/being.
