Ghosts: lost mittens and discarded socks (2001)

Glass, mitten and sock residue, cardboard boxes

50x100x75cm

Discarded socks were collected from friends; lost mittens were retrieved from the bus depot and department store lost-and-found bins. These forgotten garments were subjected and ultimately destroyed by a hot glass casting process. This process is similar to traditional casting; a cast (or surrogate) is made via an original, but different than traditional casting methods, which keep the original intact. The hot technique scars or completely destroys the original through the intense heat of the process. In this piece the original sock or mitten is burnt away leaving only a ghost form and residue in its place. They are exhibited in cardboard boxes, like the lost-and-found boxes.
