The Ora, inspired by The Spirit of Bjork, is the second edition in a series of sculptures created by Haiiileen using the same idea of handmade acrylic petals to formulate a crystalized sculpture piece symbolizing love, light, and transcendence through the use of light and color.
Haiiileen uses an experimental approach to this piece at a time when she was producing and publishing consistent content for Z!NC Magazine. The shoot took place in Downtown LA and captures the models in a fun and creative way bringing Haiiileen’s imagination to life. It’s almost as if the models were using a Snapchat filter, but way before the concept was yet actualized as a Snapchat filter.
