Filtered extracts (The Brookfield hoard)

“The strain is real, I feel it seeping on top of me,
then through the holes that are part of me
and finally leaving me to gather below.
I have caught the materials that will not be part of the substance below.
I taste the waste and am intoxicated by what has passed through me.
Most of it will leave, scrapped, and washed away,
but the memory is ingrained, an extract mostly not visible
adding to my ware, my tear, my being.”

Material – Filter paper (wine stained/sediment) found paper stand.

Size – approx. 30cm in diameter
