Magnet, Melted candle, Iron powder
A material in proximity to another object has a chance to affect the other and keep touching each other.
In this work, immanent power amongst materials activates precarious relationship. The piece “Dropping, Falling, Rubbing’ is a study of time, gravity, forces, and material. She built a structure with black magnets and used the black magnet as a mould. When candles were burned and melted in it, the iron powder in melted candles slowly moved toward magnetic structure and revealed its trajectory through time. In this sense, the work demonstrates the way that forms shape each other through touch.
