Leaves serve as vessels of life and memory, veined like skin on older hands, with surfaces that record and display signs of their life journey. Each year they appear, disappear, then replicate in the coming season.
For me, leaves and cocoon-like forms are a simile and strong metaphor. They signify “potential,” metamorphosis, natural cycles, personal regeneration and transformation.
The installation activated an 8' x 8' space, with shadows created by directional lighting dancing on adjacent walls.
