For this piece I wanted to provide an especially playful scenario to break down any potential preconceptions regarding what a ceremony can look like. The marbleizable colored sand acts as an invitation to play while simultaneously being treated as a mode of visual meditation. Also the straws for these sets have been treated particularly weird to entice a more synesthetic experience when they're sipped from, they almost pucker-up and kiss you back when you put your lips to them.
