An exploration of materiality and ephemerality through the use of organic matter and geometric patterns.

This multidisciplinary research project frames the ways in which both Eastern and Western philosophies influence my understanding of natural phenomena. I respond to the notion of continuity and change through repetitively reordering organic materials into geometrical patterns. Through this process, I seek to elicit a poetic appreciation of the beauty of evanescent cycles and the intrinsic connection between nature and culture.
