Sharon Goodwin’s installation 16518 consists of a series of painted ply cutouts of snakes that make the shape of individual numbers. The snake numbers will be arranged to reflect the amount of days that the artist has been alive starting at 16,518. The work will be added to and subtracted from each day for the duration of the exhibition.
