Memory Stick 40" x 16"

And it is completed. I decided that the piece needed an archway, perhaps to suggest we are getting a peek into a chasm of time. I wanted the archway to appear to be barely containing the communication process, communication through time, the memory of communication. It's splitting apart, perhaps imploding, hence the fieriness, some charing. The archway is made of a composite paper cup holder from starbuck's. I tore it up into pieces intentionally using the pieces that would stick out from the canvas and the pieces that appeared like a Y (architectural features?). Micaceous Oxide again to make it look stone-like, of the earth.
