Hilden & Diaz
ASH 2010

Framed ash. As fire destroys, the new will reappear from the ashes. In this series of ash pictures Hilden & Diaz has framed a compressed mass of ash and charcoal and carbon created from burning meat, wood, paper and other curses to different colored ash. The pictures are huge man scaled frames, with thick armoured glass slightly reflecting the viewer into the organic layers of ash.

Elder carbon of probable biological origin 3800 million years, the earliest trace of life on earth.
