    Dirge 1

    This image is from a series called American Tapestry, which features pieces of American art and decoration in various states of “decay,” or, better put, ideological confrontation. The idea behind these melting porcelain pieces is really quite convoluted and silly, but to me ultimately visually and conceptually alluring: what would porcelain look like if it was subjected to the intense heat of an atomic bomb explosion, if only for a millisecond - like the ones detonated over Hiroshima and Nagasaki, for example? Originally titled Nagasaki Heat before settling on the more arbitrary and innocuous Dirge, these images could represent the propensity that American culture has for creating immense beauty and immense brutality.
