Hello world! I have a baby. And am getting married next week. So blogging has been slow…. But then, there’s this new stuff I’m excited about.
Phossils are, more or less, fossilized phones. Here I subject media devices to extreme heat and cold, artificial pressure and geological time, or other intense conditions that weather and turn these materials into… somethingelse. Through research, experimentation, and craft, I have tried to transform phones into crude oil, coal, or other fossil fuels, into synthetic archives and simulated relics for a future time. Cook, freeze, burn, smash, blend, and more… and put the results on exhibit, in beakers and tubes, on pedestals and stands, and/or as archaeological finds.
