Still Life, 2017

Found tree trunk, steel, marble, pepto-bismol, pond defoamer, oil pump, DC supply, electric wire.

Still Life pumped 20 gallons of pepto bismol up and through the tree trunk until the moisture in the medicine entirely evaporated, leaving behind a cracked memory of the fountain's function. The sculpture can be visited at the studio of Gabriela Molina in Chicago's Mana Contemporary. For some time the scent of cherry menthol dominated the studio, no longer.
