Wood ash / 25 x 7 x 3.5 cm — 2020

MATTER is an ephemeral sculpture made of wood ash compressed in the shape of ingots and presented in a sterile environment. It refers to the value of waste materials at a time when resources are scarce and sustainable alternatives must be investigated. It started with the question: what if waste materials were considered valuable?

Work selected in 2021 for the exhibition NSCAD Graduation Showcase by the Anna Leonowens Art Gallery and group exhibition Embodied Futures in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
