Date of Defense
The author sought to create objects on the verge between abstraction and representation. Humans identify what they are looking in to make sense of it, but the author wanted to make the art look like nothing in particular. The forms are intended to be obscure, absurd, and seemingly nothing. This is especially a consideration with jewelry, which is traditionally expected to be wearable, and departing from this standard makes one question the objects themselves and why they are created.
