In this exhibition by Sally Weber, the elements carbon, gold and iron are integrated with works of light. Early alchemists believed metals matured in the ground, transforming over time from base metals to the royal metals, silver and gold. Their intent was to carefully transmute metals from one stage to another, speeding up the process. Iron, the most abundant metal in the universe, is the actual transformative metal. Its fusion in the core of a star triggers a supernova and the subsequent creation of all the heavier metals including silver, gold, uranium and plutonium and is fundamental to the earth and all life.
