“Acúmulo” is an installation that depicts a loosely interpreted microbiological habitat. Acúmulo is Portuguese for “growth by continued additions.”
Artist Rosane Volchan O’Conor’s biomorphic creation, a world of paramecium, spores and neurons, is composed of materials that include neon light, ceramic, wood, metal and found objects such as: luffa sponges from her hometown of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; porcelain-dipped Spanish moss from her years in Houston; and industrial materials from Denver International Airport’s recycling collection.
