wall fusings

2009

Untitled (Ashes)

2009. Five seperate signatures on newsprint. Each was placed between glass panels and fused. As the newsprint burned, the gases emitted were trapped and formed a bubble that encased the ashes within the glass.

'

had 5 important people in my life each sign their name on a piece of paper.
put each piece between 2 sheets of glass and fused them in a kiln.
as the glass fused, the paper burned, and the smoke created a vacuum-sealed bubble that encapsulates the ashes.
