These works were made to facilitate my family's healing process after my son went through liver transplant surgery when he was a baby.  They are quite ephemeral and most of them fell apart or were destroyed after he recovered and was finally healthy.  All of the works were made in our apartment in Brooklyn, NY during the time I was staying home to take care of him during the days, while my wife went back to work full-time as a special needs art educator.  Some of these works were shown at Brennan & Griffen and at Regina Rex, and Pace University in NYC between 2013/14.
