Mi Lake is a lasting mosaic is comprised of sea glass fragments that contain community submitted images intertwined with archival photographs. The artist conceptually asks each community member and viewer to form a relationship with the piece as it captures their Lake memories – each singular piece of glass acting as a tiny time capsule.
The translucency of the glass artifacts themselves allows for ever changing hues and tones based on the light as it reflects and backlights the displays. The dense content within the column beckons the viewer to come close to browse the images. For those in the community who submitted content, it allows them to explore, in search of their own personal artifact.
