The Weight of Neor

Nicholas Martinez's avatar Nicholas Martinez

The Weight of Neor is my adult interpretation of a concept I would often fantasize about as a child. When I was very young, about 5 or 6, I struggled with how enormous the universe was in comparison to how small I was. I would often imagine myself floating in space all alone on a block of concrete. In the middle of the piece is a tiny pencil drawing of me on that concrete block.
