Equilimbria are made of recycled plastics, guitar strings, buttons, deconstructed doll parts and cotton. They hang on the wall, and the flowers wiggle and/or bounce with breezes and the like.

Christiana Myers writes: The Equilimbria series, initially begun in 2014, was a combination of Wells’ ample supply of doll limbs and her bouncy flower sculptures. Their cheeky title comes from Wells’ intention to capture the balance, or equilibrium, of life and death. The limbs appear as though they may be entering the world for the first time through the birth canal, while the flowers protruding from fingers and toes act as a strangely cheerful memento mori, an artistic reminder of the inevitability of death. In art historical representations of memento mori, flowers are often used as a symbol of the precarious nature of human life—beautiful in their prime but destined to wilt. The conceptual framework behind this series combined with Wells’ commitment to the use of recycled materials emphasizes the cyclical nature, not only of life, but of objects and their components.
