My question in this work has been to figure out what it means for matter to be stable or illusory. I recognize matter changes depending on its scale and that we live inside systems and constructs that are essentially provisional based on our limited perceptions.

Matter Illusion is a work that is a macroscopic view of interconnectivity and perceived separateness. The weight is reflective of our gravity and mass, the trap-like forms are reflective of the tendency to compartmentalize, define, and categorize all of which are interconnected by the netting above.
