"Doilies (Hepadna)" by Laura Splan re-examines the lace doily as an innocuous domestic artifact that traditionally references motifs from nature. The design of each computerized machine embroidered doily in the series is based on a different viral structure (HIV, SARS, Influenza, Herpes, Hepadna). The radial symmetry of the doily form is conflated with that of the corona virus structure. MORE: http://www.laurasplan.com/viral-doilies #laurasplanart

“Surface Tension” by Laura Splan alludes to the invisible worlds that are at play as we wash our hands. Drawings of hands and microbes underlie a latent image of bubbles rendered in foam hand soap. When applied to powdered graphite, the soap bubbles distribute the graphite in and around their own shapes. Once dried, the shape of each bubble is rendered in the graphite and soap residue.

“Host” by Laura Splan attempts to materialize experiences of coming to consciousness about HIV and AIDS while coming of age in the 1980’s in the suburban South. Doily forms obscure underlying renderings in the works on paper by using vintage plastic doilies as stencils. The sculptures combine delicate porcelain forms with more rigid 3D printed elements stained with blood. Biomedical forms are at odds with more decorative ones.
