This environment is very hostile for optical techniques and in particular for pyrometric measurements.
Gillian drew materials from her immediate surroundings--bricks from a fallen wall, granite chips, pyrometric Orton cones, scissors, loofahs, pieces of metal from discarded packaging and other everyday objects such as the ubiquitous bulldog clips which, though sensibly practical in their humdrum uses, could take on a sinister role in the imagination, like a glove in a nightmare.
