fishy chips

Okay, let’s pull up the picture, zoomed in.

…Yeah, that looks a bit like a fish, although it makes absolutely zero sense for it to be shredded like that just to get a chip that large out.  For it to have been inserted in the first place, there would likely have been an incision made to begin with, which would mean no fish shredding would have been necessary.  Let’s mark it down as the-artist-didn’t-plan-this-one-through and confirm its fishiness.  That chip looks waaaaaaay to small to be readable unless it’s a microSD, but it doesn’t look much like a microSD either.  Looks like maybe a processor?  Except processors don’t contain data, they… process.

I have no idea what the fuck it is, to sum up.  If it’s a microSD after all, I’m going to side-eye the artist hard.  They’re supposed to look like this:

versus a cell microprocessor:

EDIT: oh my god.  oh my god. IT’S FISH N CHIPS

Two 17in fishes! Completed no less! Fired to cone six in oxidation. The black is amaco velvet jet black underglaze. The tan is just bare clay. The top one is my fav of the series.
These are for the Art100 show at the Piano Craft Gallery in South Boston coming up on December 2-17 this year.
