“Human being 2020”  2020 summer  
24” x 78” x 14”
Assemblage Sculpture, Mixed Media
Iron grid, iridescent cellophane, threads, yo-yo quilt, mist dyeing,
sunshine, recycled cloths

I wanted to reflect on the relationship between human individuals and complex social structures using both fragile and rigid materials. The traditional American quilting fabric is made of soft cotton dyed with indigo and connected to the metal grid made with several types of threads, representing the ties between human beings and social institutions. The assemblage is wrapped in aurora fils, attached on the side, and, merging with the sunlight, it represents the beauty of human weakness and imperfection. The various qualities of the piece are integrated and transformed into the human genome and cells.
