“Fear … illusion or real secretes its pear around a grain of truth” Arthur Miller. Awe and Wonder, Fear and Loathing explores ideas of duality through mutations, radiation and misinformation. Each installation references a particular radioactive element accompanied by background research to create an immersive experience. The archetypal crucible references a scientific aesthetic and the Coors ceramic labware in the MOMA machine art exhibition in 1934.
