(Spray and) Pray
This project attempts to capture the beauty and energy of a coral reef spawning event using materials such as condoms and fishing line. Ultimately, this sculpture is designed to turn the Juicebox into an absurd yet meditative space, aimed at getting viewers to think critically about plastic and hydrocarbon consumption while also thinking optimistically about the future.
