Peter Alexander, ‘Cloud box’ (1966). Cast polyester resin.
“Like many of his contemporaries, Peter Alexander experimented with innovative techniques for casting plastic resins, using materials that were newly available on the market in the second half of the 1960s. Cloud Box, one of his earliest works, is a cast polyester cube. By introducing water vapor to the liquid resin during the casting process, Alexander created a white cloud form inside the box. While the cube form and the polished surface align Alexander with his minimalist peers on the East Coast, the work has a figurative element that evokes the particular light and atmospheric conditions of Southern California.” <via>
