“I believe that most objects in our lives are created with a functioning purpose. They are held, used, assembled, manipulated, configured, refilled… and I am deeply attracted to qualities in moving objects and to the magical moments when humans interact with things, performing a function. Body ornaments, in my opinion, should be no different. I question the long-standing notion that they serve solely to be looked at, and aim to bring the intersection of kinetics and my love for storytelling to a material conception.”
