Packaged Secrets

Lily Roche's avatar Lily Roche

Packaged Secrets, seeks to embody concepts of fragility and the action of tiptoeing. This piece is made almost entirely out of hand pulled recycled paper, with some exceptions of packing peanuts, delightful woodshavings, and a couple of other metal structural elements. This installation seeks to provide a surreal experience for the viewer as they walk around the piece and hear the bubble wrap pop underneath. My intention in this piece was to evoke feelings that correlated with ideas of fragility and tiptoeing, to get to this point there was an intense amount of focuses on these concepts and what they connote. Words I kept going back to while making this piece: packaged and protected, secrets, barley there, unseen, intention, step, slow, wrap, encased, hiding, pierced, repetitive, delicate. I hope you get the chance to tip-toe around my work, thank you!
