Object Petit a

Object Petit a appears as a magnified view of the narcissus flowers inlaid in The Gaze installations. The Object Petit a series presents the narcissus bloom, its malleable form captured in unyielding marble and stainless steel. The work calls upon the notion of a universal preoccupation with beauty, probing the rise of a beauty industry centered around artificial preservation of youth over the embrace of the natural aging process.
