Infinite Source is a site specific installation by Cristina Lei Rodriguez for the Project Room at the de la Cruz Collection. The sculpture Divider (Amethyst) is a large, flat slab of plastic that mimics the precious mineral amethyst.  The sculpture is made by casting liquid plastic into plastic sheeting and manipulating the shape by hand as it is drying.  It is a process  that is both intentional and incidental. This “rock” is created through many layers, just as any sedimentary rock is formed in nature. 

Fluorescence is a sculpture of fluorescent strip work lights that are installed on the wall directly across from the “scans”.  This light casts an ultraviolet glow to the sculpture Divider (Amethyst). The light, just like plastic, is made from natural elements that can be limitlessly transformed into synthetic possibilities. The cold bluish light is commonly used as a work light for a studio or garage, a indoor grow light for plants or to light merchandise in a store.  Fluorescent light is also often used by Mineralogist to determine the authenticity of a real amethyst from a fake one.

In the artist studio, sculpture production is paused and recorded by placing the materials directly onto the scanner bed and pressing scan.  The printed images 4.17.12.4, 4.17.12.3, and 4.17.12.5 are blown up imprints of the process.
