My work rests on two main ideas: construction and expression. Jewels are nomadic micro-architecture/sculptures dynamically connecting with bodies and spaces. They result from materials’ deformations rather than pre-determined forms. Jewels are neither ornaments nor narrative, but expressive constructions of material-forces.
The video is inspired by Lucretius’ De Rerum Natura and was realized in 2020 during the Covid-19 pandemic. The sequence is a computer-aided image manipulation of one of my works (a ring), while the audio is a soundscape composed using natural and electronic sounds.
