Density and Decomposition Jars

Dimensions variable

A growing series of recycled jars containing honey, coffee grounds, poppy seed oil, paint, found objects, collected litter (plastic, rubber, cloth), bones, plants, and insects.

This is a density and decomposition experiment.

Objects with varying material, density, and rate of decomposition slowly move through the honey as they settle into stratigraphic layers.  Over time, objects will shift and decompose; plastic and bone are expected to remain.  This is a statement on time, pollution, and the longevity of man-made materials.
