a fast push with wicked drawback
Image descriptions for the photos above can be found by mousing over the image.
Left : Image shows a monitor with a black screen mounted on a white wall. There is a black strap hanging downward from the back of the monitor, attached to a draped white mesh insert of a stamina parachute that rests on the floor. To the right of the monitor is a handsaw embedded into the wall, operating as a shelf for 4 clear acrylic petri dishes. Each petri dish contains agar agar in the bottom, and small embedded objects like screws, nails, and brick pieces. The severe light casts angular shadows of each object across the wall
Right : The black strap from the previous image is zoomed in on and out of focus on the left side of the frame. To the right is a closer view of the handsaw and the petri dishes. The handsaw's teeth are embedded into the white wall and caulked seamlessly.

In the original installation, this rests on two bricks on the floor beneath the suspended torso cast.
