Title: Fire Starter / Scent Jar for Oil Ancestors

Artist: Fereshteh Toosi

Materials: South Carolina cotton, Pennsylvania crude oil, glass canning jar

Project Statement: I soaked raw cotton in crude oil and stuffed it in a jars for people to sniff as an olfactory experience. The petroleum has a very strong odor and the cotton is a vector for holding that scent. The soaked cotton also has a practical application as a quick, portable way to start a fire. This project was also created and exhibited as part of the Westtown Artist Residency Project with The Weaving Mill in Chicago, Illinois, USA.
