A kernel of popcorn experiences a dramatic change when heated—quadrupling its size in a matter of seconds, and transforming from a sleek design into an abstract sculpture. Owen Mortensen captures this metamorphosis in his playfully named work, Pop Art III. The piece, which features real popcorn kernels, re-contextualizes an abundant food staple as a specimen of natural wonder.
