Image taken from a series documenting wax objects made from the first harvest of honeycomb in Spring. Carried around Naarm (Melbourne) to be held and smelled by people during structured conversations. The wax was made into a candle (exhibited at VCA Gallery) lit, burned and extinguished each day, the wax-soaked tea towel it sat upon was returned and composted in the garden.
