Structural integrity and ephemeral translucency are provided by perforated sheets of aluminum. Viewed from this backlit side, the piece seems to have no substance. From the other side, light reveals much more. Interactions between the transparent, perforated metal layers create animated moire patterns that vibrate with the viewer's shifting perspective.

With the desire to SEE more intensely and coalesce moments of clarity from the complexity of experience, this piece is an intersection of two complementary aspects of my art practice: the creation of illusive ephemeral spaces with translucent and reflective materials and the creation of visceral substance with clay and other solid materials. Visceral substance is revealed below illusive and ephemeral layered surfaces
