The Moon

Class of: 2026

Major: Fine Arts BFA

Medium: Paper mache, wire, egg carton, fairy light

Faculty: Madeline Schwartzman

Prompt: The assignment was to create a wearable sculpture based on a memory.

My selected memory is of celebrating Mid-Autumn Festival, particularly the tradition of carrying a lantern and playing with fire sparklers. The moon also holds an importance to me as it reminds me of my family and friends across the globe. I wanted to translate these into my work by recreating the texture of the moon and paper lantern while bringing in a fun, whimsical aspect through the use of various colours.
