This piece invites us to find beauty in brokenness. Not just in its physical form, but within ourselves. It is about celebrating our imperfections, our internal struggles, and our individual journeys towards greatness. To triumph in tragedy. Rejoice in rejection. To find beauty in brokenness.
Large light bulbs are covered in clear resin and then partially broken to reveal the intricate mechanisms on the inside. The piece was illuminated from within and suspended from the ceiling so it could be viewed from the front or back.
Two variations of this piece followed - "Beauty in Brokenness II" and "Bubbles" which was selected for display at the United States Embassy in Botswana, Africa.
