MFO Candle (2nd edition)

available at Art Apart

A candle is made of paraffin wax, made of petrol.

By heating in the absence of air the amorphous carbon is converted into polycrystalline graphite.

Light up again.

A candle is a spine that holds all our bodies.

Bend your arms, according to
the rules of art — deep — it is a moulding.

Light up again.

Our bones are the last to melt away.
