The Known Effects of Lightning on the Body
A low-lit installation in which a match is projected onto a sheet of copper. The match is lit, and "bows" as it burns, its body slowly succumbing to gravity, physics, and the chemical reaction that began in the match-head. Above, a single, mirrored bulb directs light and the eye upward, its form in vertical symmetry with the match's. When the match extinguishes itself, it dissolves, only to be replaced with a different match, which burns and bows in turn.

Originally presented at YYZ Artist-Run Centre, 2014. Produced with the Support of the Canada Council.
