PUPA
A symbol of metamorphosis.

Floating overhead and rotating ever-so-slowly, Pupa rises twelve feet from the bottom to its curved top where the larva-like shape opens and fans outward and down to form a woven web-like dome filled with thousands of translucent latex balloons that will illuminate this floating biomorphic cupola.


The larval portion is intended to represent human kind’s lower nature, guided by fear, greed, and desire. As the form ascends and opens into the more delicate translucent shroud, it suggests the potential for transcendence, or the realization of the subtle body, which is believed to accompany our physical form and carry on beyond our mortal existence.

Pupa is a symbol of the precipice upon which mankind begins to wake from the dream of delusion and deep unconsciousness. A liminal space between the unforeseeable future and the behavior of our past that is no longer a viable mode of existence.

If you will be in Miami and would like to help create PUPA between the dates of November 28th and December 1st, please email me.
