Quench, Margate

Aluminium foil, painted steel, ripstock, vinyl wrap

a thwarting

a person or thing that sets off or enhances another by contrast

metal in the form of very thin sheets

Pressure applied to matter, squeezed flat, pushed sideways, spread out.

Microns away from nothing.

Aluminium. The most abundant metallic element. Infinitely recyclable. Unnatural in its purest form. Impermeable to light, odour and contamination.

Fragments. Armour. Feathers. Blankets. Rocks. Covers. Shawls.

Fugitive surfaces. Organising time into light.
