Wavecast

Plaster, aluminum, Plexiglas, and water
9" x 9", height varied from 2" - 9"
1998

 

Plaster tiles were cast directly upon the sand of various Nova Scotia beaches.  As the negatives, the casts were actually casts of the waves that left the ripples on the beach.  I then used the plaster casts to make aluminum casts, a further solidification/visualization of the original wave formation.  The tiles sat on Plexiglas boxes whose heights varied to reference topography.  One box contained water.
