the circus within

mfa thesis project

Through this body of works, I created a delicate and refined translucent quality, emphasizing the indistinct boundary between the visible and the invisible, where the unseen exists behind the empty space.

I wanted to embody the presence of absence, where emptiness expresses the wholeness of being.
