Between Worlds is derived from the remains of a bald-faced hornet nest given to me by my neighbor. Constructed of 23% plant material and 77% hornet saliva, I was entranced by its beauty and marveled at its engineering. It stayed on my kitchen counter for the night. When a dazed hornet was discovered on the counter clinging to life the next morning, the nest was set outside on the patio. That evening a foraging critter tore into it, apparently to harvest any remaining bodies. I then gathered the tattered nest the next morning and brought it to my flatbed scanner to explore.
Existing in a dark celestial void, the enigmatic images of Between Worlds destabilize the gaze and suggest an endless cycle of transformation. Though deserted and fractured, the exquisitely engineered material still resonates with the life force from which it was born.
