This piece is my tribute to family and friends who helped me during a difficult time during the recovery of my accident. Its primary theme is the fragility of the invincibility complex.
The piece contains six x-rays etched on the acrylic sheet using a laser cutter. One of the x-rays has actual medical titanium pins and screws, called "gamma nail," that was in my bone, which was removed during the second surgery. The general shape is an alteration of the ladder, and each x-ray is the rung. Each lighted sequence is the reminder of the love and help of family and friends, and also represents the time flow of recovery.
