Interactive sculpture with wax and heating lamp
InTransit exhibition, Dundee & Paradigm Electronic Arts, Summerhall, Edinburgh
A stack of wax sheets lays underneath a heating lamp. The piece stands in the dark until someone approaches it. Then the heating lamp turns on, and remains on until the visitor leaves again. Will he stay and watch the piece melt and merge under the heat, or will he walk away?
This transitory work deals with notions of time, change, preservation and interaction.
