Leander Mienardus Knust

    Exhibition: THE SOCRATES ANNUAL 2018

    Re-Material Wall, 2018

    Hot rolled steel, reclaimed pine, soil, golden trumpet vine, glass jars, copper sulfate + water, copper piping, rubber coated wire, polychrome wire, solar panel

    10 x 2 x 11 feet

    The solar panel atop Leander Mienardus Knustā€™s Re-material Wall powers an electroforming process that slowly transfers copper molecules from suspended pipes to individual wires each floating in a solution-filled jar. Over time these molecules accumulate and take unique forms as a physical trace of their carrier electricity while the steel rusts, wood warps, vines grow, and piping disappears.
