Light is a phenomena that is both infinite and ephemeral. I wanted to create something cosmic and sublime. I created a light vessel that allows one person to physically hold light. I then created a water vessel in the manner I created the light orb. However, this vessel is not meant to hold water. Rather, this vessel breaks the rules of what it means to be a vessel. The water poured into it drains through small holes at the bottom only allowing water to pool for a short amount of time before emptying out.
