Spontaneous Calcification of Experience: A Collection of Objects

“Every moment instructs, and every object: for wisdom is infused into every form.”
–Emerson, Nature (1844)

Detritus is a series of twenty-seven porcelain sculptures, presented as a collection of recently discovered calcified specimens that share a process of becoming. The premise: these forms emerged through spontaneous or near-spontaneous calcification of phenomenological or experiential catalysts. As a pseudo-scientific exhibit, each object is annotated with an analysis of its materiality and notes as to its provenance, the whole of which is a meditation on humanity’s evolving existential crises, loss, and transformation.
