Suited to the long-term storage of animal and organ specimens, which may be held in large glass jars filled with formalin. It is also used as a preservative in vaccines.
It’s something make time almost stop and make things stay in that time forever. I am doing some research about artworks between Time art and Space art. Time artwork are like music, film and performance. Space art are like painting, sculptures. Formalin is like a pause to life, it can stop a creature’s living performance, turn it into a Space artwork from Time artwork.
Just interesting about the relationship between artist and time.
