Minor Revision (Lab Accident)

Rosie Isaac

3 - 10 August, 2022

Minor Revision (Lab Accident) is part of a larger body of work that floats somewhere between science experiment and metaphor. It was made in response to (in the shadow of? beside?) research into batteries, scientific histories, Wikipedia biology, YouTube chemistry, and a lot of anxiety. It doesn’t mean in the way that science does, and it is not quite a story. Like electricity, science and delusion oscillate.

To make these works I had to keep reminding myself that things can change.
