Drifting Onward

A 9'' x 4'' transparent brick made of resin sits on a cement slab. Inside the transparent brick dried orchids are arrange in a way that makes them appear to be floating away.

9" x 4" Resin, Dried Orchids

These orchids were saved and air-dried by a friend from a family member's memorial service. This project was inherently emotional but even knowing that, I couldn't help but find the twisted shapes of these orchids melancholic. 


I wanted this to represent both the tragedy felt when losing a loved one, but also the comfort you find in their memory. Knowing that all the actions they set forth in this world will continue to live on, and their lives were beautiful and fleeting, just like flowers floating on the wind.
