Absence, for Lot’s wife

  Mixed media Installation

  5’x 5’x 20’ installed

Absence, for Lot’s wife exhibits the formation of salt crystals through evaporation on a dress constructed from fish net twine, woven in the traditional Downeast style netting. The garment, most closely related to a negligee has a collapsed train that becomes the entrance-exit to-from the bodice.

A mound of dirt held the salt water that wicked up the garment.  Even the mound itself became crystallized with salt.
