“Locus” speaks about place. While living in Sydney, Australia, I collected shells on the beach as a way to connect with this new place. The shells’ shapes, colors, and structure is the inspiration for “Locus.” To build the circular folded form, I used a papermaking process. The installation extended along the beach with strength and fragility.
