Acrylic cylinder, glass balls, glass vessels, vegetable oils. The Icebox, Philadelphia, PA 2008. Featured in the Green Museum 2010 Calendar.
This project is a two part installation. The exterior sculpture is a tall, hanging column filled with hundreds of glass balls, each containing different vegetable oils that respond to the ever-changing temperature outside. The response of the oils to the environment marks the ordinary seasonal fluctuation of temperature, but also hints at the sensation of an impending heat looming on the horizon. This exterior piece is coupled with a series of tear-drop shaped vessels inside the gallery, highlighting the contrast between our small, climate-controlled spaces and a global climate that is out of control.
