We no longer simply observe – we are moved by the experience of watching, and we move with it. By being a witness of this work, we are confronted with the idea of introspection and the complexity of both our inner world and that which surrounds us. The organic shape of the design resembles the fluidity of our thought processes yet its simplicity begs the viewer to engage with it and reflect on its meaning. The light enhances the contours of the piece but also generates rhythm. Overall, this piece intends to spark hidden emotions and trigger the viewers recollection of past experiences by suggesting a deeper, more profound meaning behind what can be immediately perceived- both by interpreting our circumstances and by becoming aware of how these change us. This is represented by the plasticity of the design itself and its homogeneousness despite the variety of colors and inconsistency of shape.
