Erotic Fictions

144x144x36 inches (h x w x d)
mixed-media installation with live fish

Three nested glass cubes filled with water and fish. Texts in Chinese, Arabic, French, English, Hebrew, Japanese and Spanish are inscribed in red on the sides, taken from erotic texts in their original languages. In the center tank, live fish swim. Their bodies become a play of light and shadow created by the light obscured by the texts on the cubes' surfaces.
