My MFA thesis exhibition, The Opulent Eye, explores my fascination with the value we place on particular spaces. The work depicts vitrines and urns but it is not their physical structure that interests me rather the space that is captured within them. Placing a seashell, dish, artifact, or any other item inside of a display case instantly classifies that object as having significant worth. I am interested with the life force that exists inside of these parameters and the ability of an object to become something special by being separated and protected from the rest of the world. This paper will define the two main influences of The Opulent Eye; my previous series which explores the concept of the ideal home and my experience as a museum patron and employee.--Abstract.
