plastic beads, glass
I used plastic beads and broken glass to create this momento. The beads were placed into the metal lid of a mason jar and then melted in the oven at 350 degrees. A Stella Artois bottle was broken and placed in the center of the circular form.
My moment is a representation of a particular experience I had in college. I opened my eyes to a light shining through an orange and purple tapestry. The circular form is representative of my optical perspective. The transparency is meant to represent the ambiance created by the light passing through the tapestry. The piece of glass in the middle was put in place to represent the sharp headache that I felt, undoubtedly, from the Stella the night before.
