Marble, plastic film
Installed 2003-2007

Plastic cling film was used to bind small pieces of marble into organic, tentacle-like structures. The plastic enabled the marble to take on shape and surface qualities that it could otherwise not achieve, while the hundreds of pounds of marble in each sculpture redefined plastic's reputation for flimsy transparency.
