Etienne Chambaud Set, 2017
Carved pyrite in marlstone matrix
7,5 x 6 x 4 cm
The series of unique works entitled Set alters found stones with pyrite inclusions. These naturally occurring rectangular forms are carved with individual dots, reminiscent of the markings on dice. The subtle alteration gives the impression of a much larger human intervention, questioning our assumptions about the relationship of organic and human made forms.
