This piece reflects the emotion of a human being viewing itself within a space in the world, much as the baby would. I chose to do this medium because it creates the illusion of a 3D space by a combination of transparent flat 2D cross-sections, and the fact that the image is not understandable from all angles. I hope to create the sensation of realization and mystery as the viewer comes around the piece and ultimately comprehends the image, yet still being deceived by the illusion of 3D reality, much as the infant sees itself in the world but does not understand the separation.
Hopefully this piece will be accepted into a show sometime soon and you all can see it in action! But for now I hope you enjoy these images :)
