This is a photo of “Life-Support,” Bryce’s installation for the Re-cycle Project (2003) which also included works by Adrian Blackwell, the PED collective, Germaine Koh, James Carl. Located beside the nuclear reactor at McMaster University, the controversial “life support” was built with 600 sheets of drywall and resembled a snow drift, white whale or a waste heap in a construction site.
