Glass Ball SnCl₂
SnCl2 is a body of work that aims to reframe the technique of fuming (using Stannous Chloride, chemical formula SnCl2, to create an iridescent surface effect) within a contemporary context. This traditional decorative surface used heavily within the art nouveau period is then applied to the abstract experimental form. The interior of the bubbles is wrapped in copper wire salvaged from discarded technology, resulting in a distorted exterior with a shimmering ethereal surface. The exterior then paradoxically appears both transparent and translucent at the same time, much like soap bubbles or oil stains.
