An articulated carapace. Delicate,
flexible, extremely light. The ends
are connected into a seamless loop
via magnet. Membrane stitched
with black cotton thread.
The Amber series is my second
senior project at Bowling Green
In this set of objects, steel wire, nylon
and shellac are my flesh and bones.
I intend them to be memento mori,
reminding the wearer of inevitable
putrefaction. The forms and textures
are intentionally challenging, meant to
evoke a sense of unease and discomfort.
