A new exhibit featuring the work of Rosamond Purcell has opened at Carnegie Melon University. "Eloquent Eggs & Disintegrating Dice" opened last Wednesday at the Silver Eye Center for Photography. It focuses on various photographs of disintegrating dice and the surfaces of eggs from various animals. The project was inspired by a decomposing and crumbling dice collection belonging to magician Rick Jay. According to "The Tartan," "Jay asked Purcell to record the “dying of the dice.” The dice are made out of celluloid, which is a notoriously unstable substance, unlike plastic which can last a very long time. Purcell’s suite of photographs captures the texture and the vibrant colors of dying dice."
