Glass is Skin is Water is
Installation consisting of an artist book, video, and temporal glass and water elements. The sound, sight, smell, and temperature create a multi-sensorial experience, similar to visiting a temple. The artist book is positioned such that whoever interacts with it has their back to the wall, placing them in the position of a sermonist. Glass receptacles allow water to drip onto heated metal plates below, creating ephemeral colonnades in front of the altar. The installation teases how ablution, a religious and ritualistic cleansing, has linguistic and ritualistic similarity with everyday processes like cleaning oneself for hygiene, as well as violent processes like ethnic cleansing.
