Hot iron

Hot iron

Material/ iron, 100 sheets of recycling paper

Measures/ various
2014/ Berlin/ Germany

For this work, I took my iron, a tool I usually never use, and placed it on a stack of 100 sheets of
recycled paper. For a few days I left the iron on the stack. Unexpectedly, the iron did not burn its
way through the stack, but burned itself by being exposed to the constant heat. In conclusion, I could
never use the iron again.
