Leander Knust’s Re-Material Wall uses a solar panel to power the electroforming process that transfers copper molecules from their suspended pipes to the wires in each, solution-filled jar. The molecules will then accumulate and form their own unique designs, as the steel rusts, wood bends and sculpture “decays.” Re-Material Wall is one of many works of Knust that explores decay, growth and the process of change.
Knust’s Re-Material Wall will be on display at the West 111th’s Street People’s Garden from April 14, 2019 to April 13, 2020.
