The Essence of Time : Yesterday

The potential of a life yet to be lived. The first artwork of the Triptych.

The first scene, Yesterday, celebrates the potential of a life yet to be lived. The opulent, bejeweled egg pays homage to the great craftmanship of Fabergé, whose Imperial Eggs recall the tragic fate of a grand dynasty – a luxurious memento mori in itself. The egg, featuring a unique butterfly motif, is opened by the viewer’s touch to reveal a delicate mechanical butterfly, a reference to Puppet Flutter, an earlier physical sculpture by Harris.
