Dreams are fleeting, the autonomous events which happen in my subconscious transmit their power to my consciousness. I wish to know where these contents come from, why I have these dreams, or if these dreams are referencing narratives from what I have seen or experiences.
Of all the materials that I have interacted with, silver has become my favorite drawing medium. The enduring nature and preciousness of this material have enabled me to preserve and solidify the moments I encounter in my dreamscape. I make these pieces by soldering each individual wire, constructing them into an image and making it to a brooch. The process of soldering is a slow and tender process, and time is commissioned to consolidate the story-telling of these pieces. With the building up of wires, the piece gradually reveals itself to me, and the introspective narrative is woven alongside this process.
The relationship between my dreams and waking life did not remain emotional once I was determined to bring my dreams into my jewelry practice. Dreams exist above the human body, but making them in the form of jewelry brings them back to the physical body.
