Geothermally Occurring Sculptures

Wood with natural mineral deposit. 2011. This new series of silica sculptures formed over three weeks in the arctic winter in the 80° Celsius mineral rich waters of the Blue Lagoon, an active geothermal spring in Iceland.  Like the cave casts, these geological artworks are composed of new mineral deposits which rapidly encrusted the wooden stencils within. One work, An Airbubble, the Potential Origin of Life did not form properly, disintegrating in the spring.
