These lenticular bowls are made from photographs of the artist and her good friend Tywen. They are similar in interests and personality, but more so they are both racially white and Asian. The human aesthetic of being mixed race is explored through these images to show similarities and differences between the two of them. Their ethnic ambiguity represents a future human race, as the population becomes more multiracial. The photographs are presented in lenticular shaped bowls, allowing for the photographs to be three dimensional objects that can be read as two dimensional images. the bowl shaped paper also is lost, neither being able to exist purely as a sculpture or as photographs. They slowly spin in and out of being legible, reflecting the multiracial experience of being neither belonging in one racial group or another.
