Styrofoam Dissolution Study No. 2



• Zach Duer

The image of a spider web is projected onto a styrofoam sheet. In performance, I paint and spray acetone onto the sheet, causing the styrofoam to dissolve. As it melts away, the inner form of the styrofoam is revealed, resembling the image of the spider web. A camera is used to track the styrofoam as it dissolves, setting the image of the spider web into motion.
