Dove Bradshaw | Six Continents

July 26, 2011

In Dove Bradshaw’s expansive installation Six Continents, mounds of salt gathered from each continent boast the unique mineral deposits and hues of their places of origin.  Suspended above each mass, glass funnels drop water at intervals creating a range of chemical reactions that repeatedly alter the shape and color of each sculptural work.
