Directly inspired by Salvador Dali’s “Persistence of Time” the surreal time that the viewer spends inside the gallery with “Melting Persistence” Changes the actual nature of the Sculpture. Over a course of few hours the lamp will be the author off a new sculpture to the podium below it. With time and heat as its tools, the lamp deconstructs itself in order to create something different. The sculpture is in contrast to work made by Urs Fischer as his is about the act of watching and waiting for an end, “Melting Persistence” is about watching the creation of a new unknown entity. The sculpture was as well an exploration into a medium that had very unique properties to it. Those properties while hard to manipulate were easy to direct.
