Casting Shadows
is an installation of jewelry, sculpture, and print. The work uses production materials and techniques to render and transform ubiquitous forms association with the body, industry, and value. Informed by various fabricating roles, the work complicates the narrative of producing by carving out, reconfiguring, and deconstructing the process – reimagining the methods that generate form and shape. The installation ultimately explores authenticity within production – questionings what becomes the mold and what becomes the object, what is discarded and what is valued, and what is seen and what is unseen. Casting Shadows materializes these negotiations and relationships between high and low materials, the body and object, production and process, and making and exchanging.
