Tulip Bulb draws on natural imagery of bulbs and wombs to evoke a gestation period in which the sitter can grow through introspection and reflection before re-emerging into the community. The intricately perforated, subtly painted metal walls facilitate interactions with the outside even as the sitter remains protected. Tulip Bulb provides a semi-permeable space that encourages the participant to look inwards yet retain the expectation of re-emergence into the community.
