“As above so below” or “Les Fleurs du mal” (title suggested by Dr. Peter Morse).

Three vintage glass bowls containing structures made from filter papers, each with a central conic form capped with three metal rings of iron, copper and aluminium, resting in three salt solutions of acidic, neutral and alkine, coloured by natural red cabbage juice indicator. Each underlit by a LED spotlight programmed to slowly change in complementary colours.

A work that visually changes moment by moment and over many weeks as electrochemical reactions occur and crystalline structures emerge.

Prototype reaction: alkaline solution, iron wire. Coral-like crystalline structures emerging after around two weeks.

Prototype reaction: acidic solution indicator red/purple, copper and aluminium tape.

The work will be installed next week, more photographs to follow.
