happenings | December 13, Impermanent Vessels at Dog Rocks

The latest installment of Michael Morgan's Impermanent Vessels  took place at the artist's studio/residence in Batesford a few hundreds meters from Dog Rocks. The theme of the transformation of the cast of the artist's head was transition of matter from ice to water. The ice head slowly melted in a sunlight reflecting swimming pool, accompanied by the transition of the sun from daylight to the night darkness. Three cameras surrounded the ice sculptures, to record a time-lapse sequence of light-matter transition. Two other ice sculptures from the same mold were part of the Melbourne COP21 event held at Arts House two days earlier.
