Farthest Reach - Glass2021
Farthest Reach comprises of 2 sited sculptures. A work grown solely from Mycelium, a living, changing and trasient material. The second work is made chiefly of Glass, another earth-derived material with more permanence and longevity. The Mycelium sculpture is installed in a remote area of Glentress forest and will naturally return to the earth over a few short months. The Glass sculptures are shown as part of a number of pop-up installations over the summer of 2021, the first on Yellowcraigs beach in early July.
The glass blocks with meteorites were housed in a vertical solid bright bar post post roughly human size. Images show both meteorite and impactite fragments visible within the 3 blocks. The smallest a rough glass shard with a flake of Darwin Glasscaught within. The largest block contains a chickpea sized fragment of Impactite green in colour, cut through on the top surface of the block and revealing pits, minerals and wing-like structures within. The ground-basedflatter block contains a 2cm cross-section of Zhob 2020, a chondrite that fell last year in NE Pakistan after a probable 4.5 billion year existence somewhere in our inner solar system, likely hailing from the asteroid belt.
Farthest Reach is the 3rd of 3 collaborative artwork by Asteria Creative.
