The assignment was to make a piece fully based on color. I knew right away that I wanted my viewers to somehow wear color, be bathed in it, not just observe it. The viewer does not know what the piece is or how to interact with it until instructed to insert their hand and squeeze the overhead forms at their choosing.

The piece became a way to honor my fellow creatives: whenever my hands look like this, it is because I have been creating. My art classmates were my first participants, and I got to dress their hands in this way and leave them with a memorable stain, showing my gratitude for their inspiration.
