The small piece with the glass dome is called "specimen" and the larger piece is untitled as it's a study for doing something larger scale. This recent work (made with recycled fibers of wool panel remnants from Berkeley Ergonomics) uses the nerve cell as a starting point to explore ideas of connection, and suggests parallels between our inner biology and the external morphology of the plant kingdom.
