The piece ‘Matrix’ was originally part of a larger installation titled Ossuary: bones as signifiers of human absence, at the Karsh-Masson Gallery, Ottawa, 2007.  This dramatic and unconventional work has not been shown since that time,  partly because it does not fit comfortably in traditional gallery spaces, partly because of its size. The work consists of life-sized glass casts of human bones which seem to ‘float’ in an undulating wave, suggestive of debris on water.  The original idea for the structure of the piece came from crude early ( pre- PC) attempts at three-dimensional modelling of multivariate analysis data.
