The Guardians is an interactive art piece that was installed for a week at the Chrysler Museum of Art's Vestibule 102 gallery in the summer of 2016. Viewers were asked to write down something that they regretted, and to then feed that regret to a guardian jar. Each Jar holds a different meaning of protection, the canine is loyal, the Bird is cunning and smart, and the Alligator is strong. Viewers picked which jar to "feed" their regret to, within the jar those regrets were "digested" by an algae organism, thus making new life from the past mistakes and regrets of an old one.
