Isomalt castings of three generations of hands: grandmother, mother, daughter. 


Installation which featured isomalt sugar castings of three generation of hands. Water drips from above to the hands below eroding the sugar, with the older hand getting the initial burden. The older hand protects the hands below, until it breaks down, causing water to start eroding the hand below. The older hand sometime falling onto the hand below, until that breaks down. This project explores what gets passed on from generation to generation and the weight that it holds. Sugar was chosen as a material because of its connection to illness and link to causing dementia. The piece is made to be impermanent and acts as a performance. I often use fugitive materials and activation in my work to show time and impermanence.
