CORPUS COLONIES II
Silk, silver, steel
My work is driven by my interest in identity, metamorphosis and evolution. I explore these themes creating mainly with paper and fabric. I am fascinated by the ways a flat surface transitions into a three dimensional object, experimenting with the materials abilities to fold and unfold, expand and compress, appear and hide. I usually work in a wide range of media including sculpture, jewelry, installation and performance.
The jewelry collection “Corpus Colonies” is about our relationship to our own bodies, a familiar and unknown territory. The forms share many qualities with the live organisms they mimic but they are developing, evolving and set free by this process of transformation.
