Frames of Reference
This work explores the notions of preciousness and personal memories. Distinct steel structures provide the ‘Frames of Reference’ that represent both the strength and fragility of memory. Just as interpretation varies with each recall, so sliding joints allow the form to change, whilst the content remains constant.
Indistinct silver figures evoke particular moments of personal significance. Their distorted forms appear, god-like, hovering on beams of light and shadow, barely touching the ground but exerting influence from the remembered past. Each structure incorporates a removable part that can be worn as jewellery, representing both the larger piece and the underlying memory.
