As you light a match, you don’t just see the flame and feel the heat. The match produces sulfur, which in large quantities is harmful. I burnt 53000 matches in the process of making this artwork. The intensity of the labor and the intense smell of that much sulfur created an unpleasant and dangerous space to work in. This space was created and imposed on myself by myself.
