The Dentist

by Robin Peck

Canadian Art, Summer 1997, v. 14, no. 2, p. 71

Robin Peck writes about artist Laura Baird's installation Waco Bridge. He compares the medium of sculpture with the "sculptural encounters" at the dentists such as carving and casting. Peck talks about the references in Baird's piece to the deaths of the people at the Branch Davidian Complex near Waco,Texas, many who were only distinguishable by their dental records.
