A few months ago, Kyoto-born artist, Aiko Miyanaga made her UK debut at the Liverpool Central Library with a site specific installation for the Picton Reading Room. It featured crystalline formations made from naphthalene, which continually sublimated and re-solidified into the shape of books and keys.

Miyanaga is now expanding on that installation with another site specific work at London's White Rainbow gallery. Strata: Origins is open until the 22nd November and explores the resilience of seemingly delicate objects and their transitory existence.

Using naphthalene - a volatile compound that changes from gas to solid without turning into a liquid - she has cast keys, books high heels, clocks, and other objects.

This will be accompanied by a ceramic work, which has been created by a process called 'crazing'. This is when fired ceramics are suddenly exposed to cold air, and is usually considered a fault because it causes the ceramics to generate erratic sounds
