From self-consuming flames of dripping wax candles to the ephemeral light filtering through blown glass objects, Kelly Akashi’s (AIR ’19) sculptures often exist in a perpetual state of metamorphosis. Even hands cast in bronze seem poised to caress or to beckon if only given a moment. During her residency at Headlands, Akashi will continue exploring notions of transformation through observation of the Headlands landscape and its geological and biological changes. The resulting research will inform new photographs and sculptures that will be shared through Project Space.

Project Space is located on the third floor of Building 944 and is currently accessible only by stairs.
