Nasal mucus

From 2002-2004, Ford was constantly collecting his bogies in an eggcup and making them into a ball, in an attempt to create an egg-sized mass. Mucus is essentially comprised of dust and skin cells, so this work is actually a physical record of all the different places the artist has been and people he's met. The work was originally displayed in a broken eggcup, within a glass case, with an accompanying printed story.
