What brings people a feeling of safety and protection? Do security measures at airports or a spiritual connection?

Confiscated Weapons of Mass Construction questions how protection manifests in our current cultural epoch.

Sculpture, wearable art, and large-scale installations (proposed for exhibition in an airport) are all constructed with thousands of scissors recycled from confiscated airport security procedures.

Just like a pure resonant note shatters a glass, a visual imprint of the beauty of perfection changes a viewer.

These circular sculptures hold an essence of the macrocosm and microcosm bringing harmony on an archetypal level.
