Hot Pool

Hot Pool (2010) is a diorama in which a landscape of wax continuously transforms under the influence of melting and solidification phenomena. The installation is an autonomous generative system wherein candle wax and heat are the shaping elements. The ongoing - although very slow - process is visible for the audience through a small window. This time-lapse recording (acceleration 20x) gives an impression of what is happening inside the diorama.
