An artwork from me

Last year in art class we were each given a lightbulb and tasked to create something with it. This is what I came up with:

The form of the lightbulb and the warmth it gives off reminded me of a cocoon. I covered the glass surface with white strips of acrylic paint, wrapped the base in gauze and wound white thread around the entire lightbulb to create this cocoon. The lightbulb is also a giver of light, whereas I imagine the inside of the cocoon to be dark and the light of the world is only revealed when the larva emerges from it.
