Layers of Psyche
Major: Graphic Design
Genre/Medium: Sculpture, Chipboard, Spray paint
About the work: Layers of Psyche is a sculpture of the asteroid 16 Psyche. It breaks the asteroid down into 16 individual layers that are cut out from chipboard and spray painted white. The pieces were assembled like a puzzle, similar to how teams must come together for the mission to Psyche. The finished sculpture is hung with clear string and illuminated with different colored lights to add liveliness and represent an array of emotions felt by everyone involved and spectating with the mission. In an ideal exhibition space, the color of the lights would be ever-changing.
