Graduated

Our dear family friend and "second daughter" Rhiana Schafer graduated from UC Berkeley, in May, with a double degree in Cognitive Psychology and Neuroscience. As a graduation present to Rhiana, I created the polyptych "Graduated" from 36 images of the congregated graduating class in their caps and gowns, and a few chairs.

The images of the polyptych were snapped with my iphone camera during the three hours of processional, ceremony, and recessional.  The inspiration for the piece is the mortar board cap of the graduate.
