Lunar Libration is a work of found steel and welded industrial material, a lunar terrain inspired by science revelations. In my artistic practice I incorporate natural materials with upcycled and found objects. The refuncting and beauty of utilizing these materials also reflects an consideration of the impact wasted materials have on our environment. This work is a celestial observation of the moon, a shimmering lunar terrain.
