Nucleus

Nucleus

2007

A sculpture about light and shadow to honor my son, Tarik.


Nucleus was inspired by the materials it was created with. I saw the beauty in the refrigerator packing instantly. Nucleus deals with light, shadows, layers and cores and contains parts of drawings of sections of the brain I made while my son was in the early stages of recovering from schizophrenia. It is lit from behind by 15 tea lights. Nucleus asks you to look closely and patiently and spend time with it. It reminds you that not everything is as it seems.
