This machine, resembling a medieval trebuchet comes out of a history of destruction and warfare. In this case, mine was employed to physically transform the plaster and brick walls of the Smack Mellon Gallery. The machine did its work by lofting airborne, powdered plaster into a mist-filled room. The effect of the plaster encrusted walls called to mind the limestone cave from which the plaster was originally mined. Over the course of the exhibition, the trebuchet continued its repetitive task, imposing greater and greater entropy upon its chosen targets.
