Liner Tissue In Saline

13 March 2019

The contents of these vials are usually self explanatory; a leaf, a twig, some beach water, sandpaper, food scraps, fabric, clay, building materials … everyday objects we use and find, vestiges of our unnoticed daily lives. I place these in glass and sometimes add saline as a framing device so we can appreciate them for their simple & conceptual beauties, subsequently both touched and untouched by the passing of time.


In the vial above, tissue paper that was wrapped around some throat lozenges is floating in saline solution. I peeled the liner paper away from its thin foil, placed it in a vial and when that seemed a little too inert, added the saline which, particularly through the bubbles, revealed a dimension I hadn’t imagined existed.
