An interplanetary orbit of sculptural material unfolding in time and space alternately mimicking the look of planets and virus particles. Constructed in the midst of a global pandemic, Antigenic Rift aims to inspire. Turning the harmful effects of the virus into a synergistic experience of sound and color, the constantly changing display of rotating hand-blown elements resembling COVID-19 glyco-protein spikes speak to curiosity rather than fear.
