a series of artistic data sculptures whose form and content is determined by information (artistic, historical, political, social) from the U.S. Census Bureau, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Gallup Organization, the Bureau of Labor Statistics & many other dataset sources.

for instance, in data sculpture titled "Corpse 2", the length of each of piece is divided into 90 equal parts, each one representing a year of age, from infancy (0-1 year) to the 90th year, moving from the thin end to the thick. the width of each section is determined by the average (1976 to 1998) number of non-gun homicides per year for people at that age. the vertical dimension is set by the number of gun homicides.
