A parade of objects. both collected and created. A clementine wrapper. A souvenir from recent travels. Bamboo and bowlines. Pebbles, and shells. Each suspended amidst a familiar language of paper, mesh, and lenses.

This piece is also an exploration into the aesthetic potential of wires. Cables hold current and are irremovable from any light fixture. Instead of hiding them, I wanted to try and embrace their potential as expressive lines in space.
