Batteries, urethane, polystyrene

Variable dimensions

Dead Star is made from residual batteries at the end of their duty.  Left to itself, the sculpture will slowly cool down since there is no longer electronic activity taking place inside it.  The hundreds of batteries were once used to power appliances before they finished their ‘life’ in a recycling facility.  Retrieved from death, they were assembled again in this structure.
