Amelogenesis Imperfecta (How Deep is the Skin of Teeth) and Beautoxification
Co-presented with CSA Space, Amelogenesis Imperfecta (How Deep is the Skin of Teeth) and Beautoxification, two related bodies of work that will merge David Khang's dual vocations - in art and dentistry. A project that combines disciplines from art and dental science to produce microscopic laser-drawings onto epithelial cells. This work is based on research conducted at SymbioticA Centre for Biological Arts at the University of Western Australia. Khang experimented with growing enamel producing cells into shapes referred to as "enamel sculptures". While the project did not reach its original objective to grow enamel, the cells produced during this experiment were cultivated onto glass slides providing an area in which the cells could be drawn on with a precise cutting laser.
