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 NSCAD Graduation Showcase by the Anna Leonowens Art Gallery in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
