The piece is a palm-sized, portable microcosm, or tiny world. The work was created while translating a few Hermetic texts from the original Coptic. These texts spoke of the Neoplatonic understanding of participation, and the relationship between the infinite and the finite. The piece is a playful interpretation of the Hermetic maxim “as above, so below”.
