The inherent fragility of Kraus’s mediums betrays established ideas about the stability and longevity of sculptural form. Such flaws are seen in Untitled (2006), in which illuminated lightbulbs are frozen inside ink-dyed ice cubes. Installed in the gallery at room temperature, the ice slowly melts, producing a meandering puddle of watered-down ink on the gallery floor, eventually leaving behind a stained and patterned path of dried ink.
