2014 Student Research Conference:
27th Annual Student Research Conference

Lauren M. Radix
Prof. Wynne Wilbur, Faculty Mentor

This project represents the cohesion of a spiritual and physical nature I find inside myself. This semester, through a series of class discussions in Dr. Jesses Christianity course, I began to realize the partnering roles of spirit and matter within me are irreplaceable, like rhythm and melody to music, or words and paper to a book. This piece is a representation of soul and body as I see them interact to create who I am. The carved forms represent my physical body, made with purpose and substance, breakable and always subject the laws of the natural world. The fabric, which weaves in and out of that physicality, represents the spirit and allows me to connect to a supernatural order while living in a natural state.
