The offset wick of this otherwise plain cylindrical candle suggests something unexpected beneath the surface. As the candle burns down, a metal souvenir is unearthed and a new and evolving topography of wax is formed. The image of a building in a landscape comes into focus.
Each candle in the New York City edition of the Secret Souvenir series contains an Empire State Building, Chrysler Building or Statue of Liberty souvenir at random.
A collaboration with art and architecture company Snarkitecture.
Notes of Prairie Dropseed, Water Lily, Tulip, Autumn Moor Grass, Cucumber and Blonde Woods, many of which can be found throughout the city’s parks.
