Emotional Labour, 2018


Installation; stink bombs made from sulphur-based organic materials (garlic, onion, cabbage, hair, matches) in  glass bottles, cotton cloth, magnifying glass, light

The intensity of the sun concentrated through a magnifying glass over time starts a fire that burns the hair and starts the process of decomposition to produce an intense sulphur smell.  Adapted from a recipe found on the website wikiHow, these diy stink bombs are made from household items.  When displayed these stink bombs are odorless but have the potential to unleash a potent smell that takes up space.
