Apoptosis took place during an art exhibition at the TechArtista co-working space. I covered the entire second floor of the building with bubble wrap. Knowing that each bubble can only be popped once, participants were left to negotiate how much fun to have for themselves, and how much to leave for other people pop. As the night progressed, latecomers sought out obscure areas of the floor that had not yet been popped.

Apoptosis is “the death of cells that occurs as a normal and controlled part of an organism's growth or development.”
