Flowing of Profound
Plexiglass, optical microscope, light emitting diodes; 13 x 13 x 4 in. ea.

Elucidating a flow without tangible substance, this body of work illustrates the movement that flows from the depths of our sentiment and sensation. A microscope is used to capture miniscule portions of the being, element and tissue that form our bodies, revealing a visual flow essential to the human body that could not be seen with the naked eye.

Each microscopic image is reconstructed into an abstract reformation and then illuminated with lights in order to articulate the illusion of vividness in the phenomenon of spirituality within the body. With this piece, material substances are used to create a new form of life that holds all the necessary elements in a metaphorical approach.
