Historical Context:
Donald Lipski well known for his mixed-media installations and sculptures that question the conventional definitions of art. Much of his recent work examines the properties of organic materials and the operation of ecological systems, which are presented in an industrial, pseudo-scientific context. He uses the thick-walled, acid-resistant tanks, spheres, and tubing to enclose and preserve delicate and ephemeral substances, such as plants.
