Candle wax costume.

The toxins released from paraffin candles are the same as those found in diesel fuel fumes. 

Many candles also contain artificial scents and dyes, which release additional chemicals when burned, similar to the toxins found in varnish removers. “The time keeper” is a soy wax waste costume installation, designed to be “consumed” in less than 6 hours.
