Mutant Virus Attack Healthy Kidney


This is made from entirely recycled items. The shadow box is an old desk drawer. It is covered on the outside with ceramic tiles from a bathroom redecoration. The kidney is a model from a doctor's office I bought at an estate sale. The lettering are from old board games. The mutant virus are from an atomic model kit.
Renal malfunction is another term for kidney failure. I learned that from continous watching of episodes of M*A*S*H, which at one point in time was on television four times a day, until the local television stations forced legislation to block shows in syndication on non-local channels(TBS, etc., etc.,). It's pretty heavy, weight wise, but has lightness to it, humor wise. This is one of my favorites, but it took a long time hunched over a table, individually gluing each tile into place.
