EARTHLY DELIGHTS  (ongoing) / 2019
Machine using two elements, water and pure Sulphur.
Triptych, traditional engraving and Sulphur inlaying techniques. 
Sculptures, variable dimensions.



 
           Earthly Delights is a study on Sulphur and its image in the course of history. The project exhibits the industrial and geological cycles of the rather underestimated element, that has been a valuable commodity and integral component of the world's economy.

A series of machine-made sculptures show the passing of time, through an accelerated recreation of a slow natural process. Through a set of repeatable processes, Sulphur is shaped and solidified in water. However, its appearance can never be fully controlled. This leaves each sculpture as a unique piece, exposing sulphur in its, rarely seen, pure form.
