As part of the Centre for Chronic Diseases and Disorders Artist in Residence Scheme, Jacob has created an installation piece from concrete and rust, utilising the metaphorical possibilities of concrete cancer, an engineering term that describes the degradation of concrete that compromises the integrity of the steel framework inside.
The project looked at data surrounding haematological malignancies and humanised it through the emotional associations of blood and rusting.
The installation will be shown shortly at York Art Gallery.
