STACK I: CORROSION
Stack I: Corrosion consists of a 40 inch tall stack of handmade black denim paper underneath a glass bottle full of bleach. When exhibited, the bleach continuously drips and transforms the stack. Over time, the stack will slowly become white and erode in a chemical reaction of the paper to corrosive bleach. Stack I: Corrosion is a column of labor that is subsequently destroyed slowly through its own exhibition and witnessing. Historical references can be made to the ‘one drop rule,’ the bleaching of skin, the use of a wholly American material (denim), and when shown with Stack II, is visually reminiscent of the Twin Towers. Stack I: Corrosion is a container of action, reaction, and decay that reflects upon contemporary American culture and the negative effects of white supremacy.
