Dimensions variable

Set atop light boxes, Claydon’s mundane objects, such as a medicine ball, cast chicken bones, and new age stones are bathed in the aura-creating light of a museum display, questioning their cultural value. Their arrangement is both scientific and mystical, imbuing the humble relics with the promise of supernatural powers. Cast in bronze from KFC leftovers the bones reference the practice of telling fortunes from animal remains, while the cheap crystals gain treasured status.
