Inspired by the Baroque sculpture by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, gloves tell the story of Daphne's transformation with digital embroidery and hand beading. How Baroque art plays with nature and drama is played off in the movement of the gloves and the floral embellishments. Multi-colored thread and beads brought iridescent gradient to mimic the process of transformation. Objectification and relationships between gender are questioned within this romantic classical myth.
