Simulated time lapse of a gel environment. The actual metal parts suspended within the gel took over six months to form calcite and eventually sink to the bottom of the container.
A close-up photo of the corrosion of this piece later became one of the large 5’x4’ duratrans acrylic light box pieces in consume|produce. This piece was part of my gel and time-based work in sculpture.
