Marita Dingus's One Hundred and Twenty Ancestors is an installation of 120 figures made from strings of bottle caps and tin can cut-outs decorated by children in artist-led workshops. Sandwiched between two Plexiglas panels, the doll figures, which feature photographs of the young artists' faces, are separated by recycled eyeglass lenses.
