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.
