This work was inspired by my baby, Kosmo. Soon after he was born, I was thinking about the nature of genes & the union of both parents to make the same-looking baby twice. DNA kept lurking in my thoughts. Kosmo has since come into his own & although he still looks a lot like his sister, below the surface, he is clearly unique. The aesthetic of the chemical composition of DNA fascinated me in its attempt to symbolize the infinite in the finite. This is the first series I started in what I call "journaling in metal."
