2015-2017, ongoing project
This installation includes the sculpture object and writing. The sculpture is completely made of studio remnants accumulated over the past two years. The writing is a materials list. The materials list contains both a straightforward appendix of all the collected remnants within the plaster and more poetic, autobiographical narratives through describing the lives of the remnants. The physical objects embedded in plaster are paired with written narratives of the objects changing colors. The book and details of the objects embedded in plaster is included below. Thus, the stories reference transience, chaos, and change which is juxtaposed with the striving for permanence metaphorically referenced in the act of embedding the remnants in plaster. Three bodies of writing currently are Warm, White, and Cool.
