Masse et Martyr


Artificial bronze concretions, DC current, water, acrylic climate chambers

Two bronze concretions (Keromancies) are immersed in water through which a weak electrical current is passed.

The effect of the electrolysis is to corrode the two bronzes, whose destinies now intertwine as one of them – Mass – is protected by Martyr as the latter’s decomposition speeds up. 

Very slowly curls of smoke lift away from the bronze, drift mistily through the water and overlay the bronze with a downy covering before forming a cloudy carpet on the bottom of the tank.
