Anchors

From collecting a month´s worth of votive

candles from a small church in Iceland, a

hypothesis out of the gleaned materials;

wicks, aluminium and paraffin wax is

proposed. Through some of their

industrial and natural processes combined

with associations and references to

myths, aspects of our relationship with

nature are revealed and furthermore,

some sort of anchors. The anchors

referred to in the works represent

reminders and/or what should serve as

motivation to be concious during these

times of environmental fragility.
