About this piece:

effluence/effusive are a complementary pair of interactive works, exhibited together.

effluence: when a shadow is cast (through close proximity of audience) on the eye, a photocell senses the change in darkness and sends a signal to a relay, which allows power to a standard aquarium pump. Saltwater then flows from the hole in the surface of the framed drywall and returns to the source via hidden tubing. Salt encrusts on the surface of the "painting"
