Installation for Art Studio Show

San Jose, CA

"The Grotto"

As a participant of the Visual Philosophy Studio's "Hello, My Name is...." art show, I experimented with a non-traditional mounting method to create a unique grotto-like effect so that the art was viewed from below. To enhance this effect, I incorporated dangling amaranthus to accentuate the viewing perspective in addition to the preserved moss and foliage. LED lights were mounted within each piece to illuminate the artwork giving it cave-like feel.
