I decided to do the shuttlecock for a couple different reasons. One, the Nelson Atkins has been a big inspiration for me as an artist. I remember visiting as a child and seeing those shuttlecocks and thinking, “Wow, anything could be art.” And I wanted to be a part of that. I have made a series of like illustrations and art that has shuttlecocks in it in the past couple of years. So, my piece is inspired by the Nelson and one of the things that my friends did during the pandemic, while everything was shut down. We felt like we couldn’t see each other. So, we would go meet and have picnics on the front lawn of the Nelson. It was where we found space that we could be and feel a little bit of a sense of normalcy. Sometimes it’s nice to just have some fun. And my piece is definitely intended to bring people joy and whimsy. To just break away from some of the heaviness and the things going on in our world.
