For SITE HOUSTON I created a work called Passage. Passage is a relationship between object in space and material over time. This installation uses the specific features of the silo cone as a vehicle to deliver water to 4,100 pounds of porcelain clay, directly tying the deterioration of the object to the immediate context. Using the silo itself as a material, the introduction of water acts as a catalyst, making the steel begin to rust as the drips dissolve the clay. Over the duration of its exposure, the clay and the iron become inseparable, forever tying the clay to the elements of this location.
