What Could Have Been

Major: Mechanical Engineering and Visual Art

Genre/Medium: acrylic and collage on paper

About the work: Psyche, possibly the exposed metal core of an early planet, is the manifestation of what could have been. Perhaps what is now an asteroid could have developed into an Earth-like body. Instead it is devoid of life. My piece represents what Psyche could have been — a habitat housing billions of organisms and their joys, celebrations, sorrows: the collection of their emotions. This piece incorporates collage elements: cut-outs from a variety of magazines that capture human lives. The flowing acrylic brush strokes represent the dynamism of our constantly moving and growing lives.
