    For this project, I was asked to study specimens from the RISD Nature Lab and the fact that they could not have preserved snowflakes intrigued me. Therefore, by means of this installation, I wanted to draw a parallel between a snowflake and the transient nature of time. The installation is made entirely of fine white threads that are meant to represent the motion of the particles of a snowflake through space. Where the installation meets the two walls, the threads seem to form a well developed snowflake (an ellipse to suggest perspective) at one of the walls and a basic circular form on the other to suggest the passage of time.

Installation inspired by the nature of a snowflake 
Note that because the installation is made using a fine white thread it seems to disappear at some places
The twist attempts to represent the motion of a snowflake from one point to another as it spins in space (in a circular motion) accumulating dust particles and forming complex structures. 
Each thread essentially represents a partial of the snowflake moving through space
