Inner Eye
Materials: Silk, synthetic fabric, pvc fabric and sequins.
This piece is about scale–the vast Hadron Collider looking for infinitesimal particles. The eye was inspired by the shape of the framework holding up one part of the detector. The detector itself became the iris of the eye. I wanted a mini eye in the middle to suggest the scientists’ inward search for answers to the existence of our huge universe. 

Does the Dark Matter?
Materials: cotton, synthetics and silks.
