Palaces

Do you believe in recycling yourself? This idea is explored by artist Gina Czarnecki, who is asking people to donate their milk teeth for Palaces – a unique art-science project that asks us to consider the potential of the parts of our body which are lost naturally during life.

The striking two metre high sculpture, which has been likened to a fairy grotto or the ‘”tooth fairy palace”, is constructed from clear crystal resin. The sculpture will feature milk teeth donated by the public from both the UK and around the world. The sculpture will grow over time as people continue to donate their teeth to the project. Palaces results from a collaboration between Czarnecki and stem cell biologist Sara Rankin. The project aims to raise real and relevant questions about the idea that adult stem cells can be extracted from milk teeth and may in future be used to repair damaged organs.
