Garden (Self-Portrait)

Plasma-cut steel

Garden (self-portrait) unveils the narrative of skin, a protective barrier. I have relied on this outer layer to shield myself from the pains of my nomadic upbringing. Inner notions of ethnicity and nomadism dictate the growth, which arises from a life cycle of change, mutation, adaptation, and death. I claim my precarious nature where the laws of neuroscience intersect with entropy.
