Oracle • 1998

Oracle installation at the Glenbow Museum as part of the 1998 Alberta Biennial. At one end of a handmade steel trough there is a barricade comprised of stacked slabs of flat stone. The remainder of the trough is filled with a reflecting pool of hardened tar. A long brass bean chain attached to the bottom of the trough leads to a bottomless bentwood chair that supports a large steel cone partially filled with beeswax.
