Terra merita series

Installed into the wall of a long corridor, an invisible amount of Turmeric spice in powder form sifts down to the floor of the niche each time a person walks by, over a period of 1 week. The installation culminates with the digital projection of a Puffy glass sculpture into the niche’s glowing yellow landscape. A print-object transpires from a photograph of the installation.
