This was my first real installation. I set it up in Toronto's Eye Revue Gallery, in March of 1983, where I ultimately wound up joining the curatorial board. Posthuman Culture attempted to answer the question: "What kind of organisms could survive a nuclear war?
The work was a kind of artificial ecosystem comprised of cockroaches, blue green algae, lichens and fungi that were all connected via electronic technology. The algae produced oxygen and food for the roach colonies and the fungi and lichen were intended to sporulate and eventually colonize pulverized architectural materials that would be ubiquitous after a nuclear holocaust.
