Giovanna Diaz – Illuminate

“This lightbulb was created for Simply Destinee as my first venture into public sculpture and participating in the conversation around social issues. The design is a painted lightbulb which is meant to represent the fractures we may cause in others. Although these fractures may often cause a lightbulb to break, my sculpture represents the various ways in which we could instead help others breakthrough struggles and shine together. Currently, I live in Aurora and work for the Aurora Public Library’s Digital Services. I enjoy traveling, reading and coffee. My art practice continues to focus on ceramics, sculpture and 3D printing. My digital portfolio may be found at instragram.com/gdiazfabiani.”

Giovanna’s bulb was moved to Waldo Middle School.
