smoked oak, polyeurethane, copper-carbonate, cupric-oxide, epoxy resin
31 x 31 x 5cm
This composition shows the end result of a process taking place on the surface of the piece. A layer of white polyeurethane was poured over the smoked oak followed by previously prepared mixures of copper-carbonarte and cupric oxide. This piece is part of a series exploring the physical manifestations of various materials undergoing these types of reactions and the interaction of deterministic and stochastic effects; the combination of effects I can directly control and those which occur by chance.
