Steve Rodin's Gradual small fires [and a bowl of resonent milk] 2012, consists of four modestly scaled Plexi-glass sculpturespositioned at various sites throughout EXPO. Each variation is equipped with a speaker playing a sound work that includes field recording of fire in denmark, and quietly demands concentration. [The title of the work refers to Ed Ruscha's 1964 artist book, Various Small Fires and Milk]

Barry has address both the epistemological and phenomenal foundations of visual art experience. fabricated in reflective chrome vinyl, and turned away from the activity of the fair, the phrase affords a literal opportunity for reflection.
