Bubble Wrap

Furthering my investigations of materials as I explore the concept of immigration I next turned to bubble wrap. I chose this material to indicate the packing up of one life to begin another in a new country.

Cut into strips and inked green with fuchsia.
Braided strips.
Inked red and melted under a flame
Inked red, melted under the over grill.
Red ink, looks like blood. Like the blood, sweat and tears that goes with immigrating.
The green and red strips merged together with extreme melting under an open flame.
