Mood Boosting Minerals

Rejecting chemically combined, man-made medicine in favor of natural remedies, this project is inspired by the raw minerals of the earth. Known for its mood boosting abilities, cuprite not only produces a dazzling red stone, but is also an ore for copper. This then fosters a turquoise patina. I approached this project with the reverse process in mind, adding a patina to UV printed copper that will continue to naturally evolve over time, with a pattern inspired by the red gem. A visual harmony of earth and air intended to bring balance and peace of mind.
