“Generations” is a living installation that I created in Spring 2014 at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. The elements were a full length mirror set on an oblong sculpture pedestal, facing upwards to reflect the warm lights shining down on it. Lying on top of the coffinesque mirror were flowers in different patterns. The sculpture started simply, and grew in complexity as each day I would add more and more flowers to the center of the mirror, and move the flowers from yesterday out towards the edges to create different patterns and make room for the new flowers. Below are some installation shots from the piece. Obviously, this piece is time-based, and impermanent, but meant to be a meditative and beautiful experience for the viewer to think on the cycle of life.
