Abacus

Cabinets of Wonder in Contemporary Art - From Astonishment to Disenchantment, Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art, 2012

 

The work is constructed of 240 linoleum folded skulls sitting on shelf. The skulls are folded of wooden pattern linoleum in 6 different shades. Each shade is sitting on a different shelf in a descending color order: from white to black.  The 6 shelves create a human abacus, combining the inner body parts with skin tune.
