Five square wax columns of different heights, each topped with a different sculpted human face. On the surface the wax sculptures appear completely white, yet the inside is lined with several layers of multicoloured wax. A timer is connected to an electrical heating system hidden in the box under the iron base. In this case at the H.C. Andersen Museum, the heating system was turned on for forty days, almost the entire duration of the exhibition.
As the iron warms up, the wax slowly melts away. During the melting process the wax colours trapped inside the sculptures gradually appear from underneath while the columns and the faces progressively sink and disappear, to finally turn into an abstract flat surface of masses of colours. The sculpture becomes a painting, while the human faces finally enter the abstract world.
The artist decided to keep a part of the last face in its solid form and to turn off the heating system after forty days. The entire process was filmed and transmitted in real time on a dedicated website, yet no recordings have been made of the online video to preserve the poetical spirit of the artwork.
