Soudan Series

A continuation of my long standing interest in alchemy, process and materiality based on the recent geology findings in the Soudan Iron Mine, Tower, Minnesota. The ancient water (found in 2008) host’s organisms held by rock formed 2.7 billion years ago, when a sea was thought to have covered the region.  Geological formations found in the mine are similar to photographic imagery found on the surface of Mars, which is thought to be an iron rich planet. The found imagery from the minerals in the mine is a vehicle for abstraction in the work.
