PROJECT

 

Dust Project

In 2009 I began what would become a three-year study of dust as a subject and material in my artistic practice. It is a substance and subject as diverse as its components; dust can include hair, skin, fibers or the fragments of stars. Dust is everywhere and all things become dust; there are few activities that do not result in its creation. My work explores the substantiality and materiality of a subject that seems to be almost insubstantial, immaterial. I also challenge the notion that dust is “dead” or inert as it is actually part of much larger cycle. The dust project eventually became a springboard for future work about cycles of decomposition and recomposition, shedding and renewal, and metamorphosis.  SALLY BOZZUTO
