Iron, sand, wood (documentation of performance). dimensions variable
This piece is documentation of a reaction mold called British Invasion, performed in Salem, NY in 2009. The documentation consists of two parts: a still photo of the reaction itself and the resulting casting from the mold. Both are intended as evidence of the temporal act of creation morphing into a permanent resulting object. British Invasion itself was a highly experimental mold, consisting of a four-part, bottom-fed and direct-carved sand mold with a wooden core. The image of the event captures not only the feel of the moment, but of the entire event (a symposium and pour) itself.
