This composition shows the end result of a process involving an electrochemical reaction taking place on the surface of the piece. The nine copper rods configured in a grid formation and connected with a wire in the middle of the surface serve as one pole for the reaction. The copper foil in he middle and steel surrounding it serve as the other pole. This piece is part of a series exploring the physical manifestations of various materials undergoing this type of reaction and the interaction of deterministic and stochastic effects; the combination of effects I can directly control and those which occur by chance.
