By focusing on essentials and not on external conditions we reach blurred lines between natural and artificial. These relationships are the jewel in the compositions of freedom.
Far below the horizon, in the darkness of the ocean, it lives unobserved by humans. Where the light goes out and ceases to exist, romp creatures of unknown nature. They lure us in mysterious ways, open up their habitat and run off with us into their world.
In their habitat live many algae.
Alginate is a material which is derived from algae. As a purely biological material it is safe and environmentally friendly. It is an exceptional skin safe body molding material. Alginate is suitable for making temporary molds, it absorbs water quickly. After the water evaporates, the shape shrinks and dries out. It is very lightweight. This was the moment where I decidet to make jewelry of it. I’ve often changed, further carved, colored, or coated the imprint. These pieces include cement, pigments or sand. What are these objects? They are mild forms, imprints of shells, skeletons of marine organisms, parts of melted sand grains together, or the unknown nature which we cannot see. This jewellery shows how I see the real, or even the unreal. There are not real found shells, or coral skeletons, there are only three-dimensional pictures of it. What could be, seems more real than visible things. The game played by real and not real, takes place in jewellery and wearer’s body.
