COMME des GARÇONS, -86 Degree Freezers: 12 Areas of Concern and Crisis
Comme des Garçons in Kyoto is a two-story retail space for high-end fashion and design. My large-scale black and white photographs of the interior of medical freezers become an interior skin to the architecture of the store, including the curved walls and sales desk niches. The photographs are from my 1995 series Art & Science: Investigating Matter. The imagery, showing genetic research, provides a serious-minded contrast to the notion of a fashion store.
