“Respice Finem” (latin) means look towards the end, consider the outcome. The idea of this project was born in an astrophysics class. The relative nature of our existence made me question ideas like how and why are we here, but mainly, where, as a human race, are we going? Where was I going after that lesson, after school, after college, after I die? Where does the sum of the energy, feeling and connection we create in daily interactions go? I looked at my surroundings from a wider perspective and how, like the planets, our lives are aligned. I decided to create a representation of vastness. To create the magical effect I wanted, I made a box that would light up the UV light liquid and water color pressed to the glass, inside the resin. I created a representation of where we are, inside of where we are. This project allowed me to contemplate deep questions which reflect in my approach towards my life.
