"Discomedusae" was the first work I made using transparent rubber, whilst completing my MFA at Massart in Boston. It is based on the 19th-Century German zoologist Ernst Haeckel's engraving of medusae (the Greek word for jellyfish), an image in itself, strongly suggestive of some sort of organic chandelier.
