"This is a self-portrait with two forms coming together to present a small container. The container is a drawer that shines bright on the interior, but is left empty to offer space for the user to decide what should go in it. While the functionality speaks more to the concept of nurture, the exterior, resembling gel electrophoresis DNA images, speaks more to nature."
