A meteorite, cast, melted, and re-cast back into a new version of itself.
A large Campo del Cielo meteorite, which has been travelling through space and time for over four and a half billion years, has been cast, melted, and then re-cast back into a new version of itself, retaining its original form. A newly formed yet still ancient meteorite, still imbued with its cosmic history. The iron, small rocks, metal and dust inside becomes reformed, and the layers of its cosmic lifespan - the warping of space and time, the billions of years of pressure and change, formation and erosion - become collapsed, transformed and renewed.
In years to come, the meteorite will be launched into space.
The meteorite is currently being exhibited at Selfridges London, as a part of their current No Noise campaign. The artwork was commissioned by The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and DREAM for the Exhibition Road Show 2012.
