  Carbon Dating, Donna Berry

’Carbon Dating’ deals with the basic properties of both diamonds and charcoal and their common element carbon. Whilst charcoal is the product of destruction and signifies the end of time, diamonds are the product of the refinement of millennia and represent a sense of timelessness or immortality.

Through the juxtaposition of this anomaly the precious nature of one is highlighted over the other, even though they are essentially the same. Visually apparent as opposites, one being transparent and the other opaque they are in fact at either end of the same process of evolution, which helps to serve as a metaphor for all things which at first seem diametrically opposed but which are on closer inspection linked through their elemental nature.

My present work derived from the detritus of my previous toast series process and similarly I prefer to choose none gallery situations to show work whether as a site specific piece or finding the right environment to show the relevant work.
