The destructive process of galvanic corrosion is utilized in these time-based

The weatherproject is a long-term collaboration in which people collect
samples of weather at a time and location of their choosing. The documentation

from welding to web-design) and willingness to incorporate new techniques
enable her to tackle varied projects within her practice.
