Further work from ‘TheUnseen’…

Edition 01 – 04

A collaboration with genius and daring friend Ryan Hopkinson

Valediction depicts the burning of a sculpture made entirely from the skeletons of leaves, hand painted in Thermochromic, Heat tracking Pigments to appear blue.

The sculpture, once ignited, acts as a mapping tool of its own destruction. The thermochromatic treatment allows the viewer to witness patterns of heat flux in real time as the leaves combust and the flames propagate.

With a starting height of 8ft the sculpture is reduced to nothing within ten seconds leaving only ash and a limited number of high resolution photographs as physical proof of it’s existence.

On first glance aesthetic beauty conceals the technology, while the true nature of the sculpture is exposed through destruction by flame. Data is made available and witnessed in real-time, illustrating a new platform for physical visualisation.
