The Garden of Death

2016
cardboard, mixed objects, salt, ammonia, water, prussian blue

“The Garden of Death” on kristallista rakennettu installaatio. Se kasvaa ja kehittyy festivaaliviikonlopun aikana.

Ammoniakkia käytetään prosessin nopeuttamiseen – veden haihtuessa suola pääsee kiipeämään pahvirakenteita pitkin.

Teos ja sen hauraat kristallikukat on suojattu lasin taakse. Taiteilijat käyvät puutarhureiden tavoin lisäämässä suolaa teokseen festivaalin aikana.

“The Garden of Death” is an installation made out of salt crystals. It will grow and develop during the two days of the festival.

Ammonia is used to speed up the process – as the water vaporizes the salt is free to climb on the cardboard forms.

The work is behind the glass to protect the fragile crystal flowers. The Artists, as gardeners, will come by to add more salt solution to the work during the festival.
