Hidden Collection

Technology transforms not only how stories are told, but also how identities are constructed. It also transforms the production process, bringing up questions on what we are making, how and where we are making it, and leads to questioning on the identity of the makers. The intertwining of craft and technology in my recent practice is a reflection of the subject matter that I am working on, and what the maker has made is not the ultimate work. Even the craft itself is transforming, and there is always something about craft, beyond the techniques, to be explored. Jewellery has the potential to provoke the issues embedded behind the form and beyond. Questions that we ask about the production process are the same as these that we have for the construction of identity – what it consists of, who is constructing it – and who is manipulating it.
