Inge Infante                 Microcosm

 
 

For these small sculptures, I treated Altoid tins in the barbeque in order to eliminate the writing and paint. The firing created an almost iridescent patina as background to the more or less thematic treatment. Out of a vast collection of materials, the individual pieces took shape, creating tension and puzzlement by juxtaposing unrelated objects. The viewer is invited on a “Gedankenspaziergang” (“thought walk”), which may lead to a view of the piece, entirely different from the title. Size: 3 1/2 x 2 x 3/4 inches
