among other things, september 19, 2015
Paper, glass, metal
Among other things, I have lost someone. This piece is an attempt to work through some of those feelings. Tissues are homogenous, mundane, unnoticed and completely unique microcosms of individual events. This is a collection of transient moments monumentalized in a series of permanent-disposable objects. Replicas of tissues were meticulously fabricated from sheet metal, hand-painted, and coated in powdered marble. Twenty have been selected and paired with fragments of text behind hand-cut glass.
