Lilia Levine’s piece Ruminations depicts experiences of mental angst and obsession through laser cutting and 3D printing. Her work represents the modern anxieties women face within our nuanced (yet ubiquitous) patriarchal society by exploring language in the 21stcentury. Levine states that although we try our best to “perfect” most of our lives, our experiences will always be “untidy and imperfect.” The artworks physical size is portable, a small 4”x6.5”x1 to mimic the mental and emotional baggage we carry around on a daily basis.
