Habit’s Fine Dust Chokes Us is made from a reclaimed painting, waste latex, and found glow sticks that act as a trompe l’oiel for commercial neons commonly used in contemporary art. First appropriated as an ironic commercial critique by artists like Joseph Kosuth and Bruce Nauman, neons have now become a staple in the contemporary museum. The trashed glow sticks for these this larger series, called Glow Stick Neons, have already lost their glow and are displayed “dead.” The written content of this piece is derived from Marge Piercy’s poem, “A key to common lethal fungi.”
