Petri Islands
"Petri Island" is a collaborative group installation project by sculptor Jim Toia consisting of works by many contemporary artists. Toia assembled this work as part of his solo exhibition called Islands at Kim Foster Gallery in NYC in 2010. Artists were given a common petri dish and asked to use it to design an art work that explored non-representational metaphors with which to understand the concept of an island.
