This is an installation I completed this week for sculpture (I think I alluded to them earlier). Anyway, they’re tentatively called Things I Can’t Let Go Of.
I can’t name my own work.
These new little babies are going to be installed next week. They are eventually going to be completely covered (as soon as I get my glowing lights in). And hanging. There will be layers of tissue paper and beeswax added as well, making part more translucent than others.
Each pod contains (protects) a relic, a fragment of something attached to a specific memory. I have been thus far unable to part with these small treasures, now safely secured in their own pods, their own cocoons, their own shrines.
An abstraction of a memory distilled down to its very essence.
