I first saw Cornelia Parker's work at the ICA in Boston. I enjoy her thinking quite a bit. Here are two pieces: Wedding Ring Drawing in which Parker has taken two 22 karat wedding rings and drawn them into a single wire the length of which suggests a living room. And Measuring Liberty does something similar with a silver dollar the length of this single wire measures the height of the Statue of Liberty. The first image here is Parker "prepping" formal silver pieces (candlabra, silver platters, silver flatware, etc.) for arrangements into a sculptural form. She also steam rolls metal instruments. I am not giving you much---so go check her out. I have a catalog of you are interested. Go.
