This is a found object assemblage piece depicting the nest of the fabled chimera, the fire-breathing being that was part lion, part goat and part snake. The term chimera can also mean one object made out of many, and an illusion.

You can see the various object the chimera has found to bring back, making her home. This piece is about past experiences and how memorabilia and how our memories can have a profound effect on the reality we live in today.

Objects in the piece include sticks, keys, computer parts, necklaces and toys.

This was on display in 2017 at Austin City Hall.
