Best Before Installation Shot 2003 Burlington Arts Centre.jpg

Best Before links commerce and science in a humorous way by making a connection between commercial product shelf life and biological aging. This installation work examines the temporal nature of life in an amusing way. Installed as a grid, this presentation makes reference to the logical, scientific discoveries in which we have placed our faith, colliding with the expectation and limitations imposed upon our lives by commerce. This is an unflinching self-examination that flies in the face of beauty industry.
