Dan Peterman: Sulfur Cycle 2.0

In 1994, Dan Peterman presented his project Sulfur Cycle intending that it be built into the walls of the soon-to-be-constructed MCA Chicago. With Sulfur Cycle 2.0, Peterman excavated the walls of the museum in search of his original work. By tracing the life cycle of a material from its natural origins to its ultimate use in constructing the museum, Peterman invites us to consider the complex ways capitalism reorganizes nature—often to the detriment of a sustainably habitable planet.
