A metal plate, resting on a carpet of powdery iron oxide, has been raised to above 200 degrees. From above, various substances of seawater, iron and copper oxide drip onto the plate with a sizzling sound. The substances will behave differently each moment due to the environmental factors influencing these processes. On the plate are a number of sculptural, porous ceramic pieces, based on the morphology of blood, which absorb the substantial processes. Alongside these are two square metal plates, one of which shows a group of sculptures incorporating the artists’ blood. The microscopical photographs of these small sculptures are printed on the plates.
“There is nothing like it. It is stardust and the sea.
The iron in our blood comes from the death of
supernovas, like all iron on our planet. This bright
red liquid […] contains salt and water, like the sea
we possibly came from.”
