“Illuminated Markers” is an artwork that looks at the biological and chance interactions that takes place in life. I have created both true and false family traits (genetic markers) of physical and personality characteristics that are illuminated through laser cut mirrors. The light filled phrases are distorted as they are filtered through a petri dish with porcelain chromosomes.
