CORNELIA PARKER, COLD DARK MATTER: AN EXPLODED VIEW 1991: a garden shed parker had blown up under controlled conditions. the fragments were collected and suspended in a closed room in an attempt to recreate the moment just after the explosion. the installation is lit with a single light-bulb at the very centre of the arrangement, casting shadows on the walls.

Phoenix Art Museum: This is one of my favorite installations. It is the burnt wood from a church that was struck by lightning. I could look at it for hours because it moves with the air.

Cornelia Parker, one of my favourite instalations of all time. The first time I saw this I was in awe of how she managed to capture something so violent so brilliantly.
