Liquefied! (work-in-progress)

Emily Adelman's avatar Emily Adelman Vote Code: 67060

“Liquefied!” is a life-size statue of a girl becoming one with water. The sculpture is a symbolic representation of the importance of meditation in becoming more aware of oneself, nature, and the universe, and the infinite connections therebetween. Using the inherent energy found in water as a focus during meditation can help one become more mindful in their life, especially regarding renewal, reflection, and transformation. The goal of using water in meditation is to “become one with water,” or as I like to say, become liquefied! The epoxy resin sculpture is aqua-green in color and its iridescence can be seen in the super glossy, highly reflective surface (the dress also glows in the dark!). The color aqua/turquoise green is often associated with strength, power, and psychic awareness. The piece will have resin “splashes” replicating the movement of water, placed at the base of each foot as well as sporadically placed on the body to add to the liquefied nature of the girl.
