Rocky Light, 2017

Cast concrete, electrical cord, light bulb. Open Edition.

Rocky Light is the result of a material experiment using expanding
spray foam not as the material itself (which has become a DIY design trope), but as a mold for casting
concrete into. Concrete is poured into a cylindrical mold made with lined with expanding spray foam. Once the concrete cures, 
the spray foam is chipped away piece by piece until the final form is
revealed. The result is a highly textured concrete surface that appears
to be naturally formed, but is actually created using a highly synthetic
material.
