Ancient Sunlight, 2018

Ancient Sunlight, 2018

Ancient Sunlight is an installation of material experiments —chemical reactions and physical interactions of sugar, salt, and starch. Arranged in mapped formations referencing the movement of the Earth’s body around the sun, the hands of a clock, or the sonar mapping of geologists, these installations consider the formation of matter and matter’s storage of energy. In a condensed time scale mimicking geologic time, these works form though chemistry and move toward entropy by responding to the humidity and temperature of their environment.

On view at Hello Studio, San Antonio, TX April 5 – May 4, 2018.

Closing reception, Thursday and Friday, May 3 and 4th, 6-9PM.
