Antarctic Item 043

antarctic-item-043-perfmetal500x332

This rusted, folded wad of perforated metal was given to me by Eddie, a McMurdo fireman. The delicate object looks and feels like a light little pillow in the hand, so I’ve resisted the initial impulse to open it up. I’ll be keeping my collected artifacts as intact and unaltered as possible when working them into the artworks.
