It's amazing the connection we share with nature. Awakening is one of them. Each morning, we wake up as updated versions of ourselves, just as a caterpillar undergoes metamorphosis to transform into a butterfly. In the negative space of my model stretching awake is a butterfly spreading its wings for the first time. This reborn butterfly is made of cut up acetate shards splattered with ink, resewn following the pattern of a monarch.
