Just before I went to sleep last night I was thinking about my project and I remembered Pompeii. About how the archelogists found pockets of nothingness while they were excavating, and for the first few they didnt know what they were, but then a clever one poured plaster of paris into the holes to get an impression of what had left these pockets and lo and behold if he didnt find people.

Theyre quite disturbing really. The hot volcanic ash pounded these people and with nowhere to go these plaster-casts show the people at the very moment of their deaths.

The "negative" space around their bodies preserved their imprint and helped to kill them at the same time.
