wax stalagmites
Top-down Bottom-up

Top-down Bottom-up (2012) is an installation with four dripping machines and 800 kg of beeswax. During the course of the exhibition four stalagmites of wax will arise on the floor of the museum. The dripping machines are suspended from the ceiling and are refilled with new rods of wax two times a week.

The work was developed for the exhibition Exploded View and commissioned by the Centraal Museum in Utrecht. The exhibition took place from July 6 to October 28, 2012.
