MEMORY + TRAVEL:

PRIPYAT, UKRAINE

As the Earth molds and moves under our feet, it softly calls to us. Location and wonder pulls us across the Earth to gaze upon it’s vistas and experience it’s cultures. These wearable objects are a part of a series that act as an extension of my fascination in the places I’ve traveled and how I experienced them in an abstract way. Using a combination of traditional metal fabrication and new technology, I took patterns found in topographic maps of the abandoned city outside of Chernobyl, Ukraine (Pripyat) and proceeded to replicate, dissect, and rearrange them so that the shapes became a dynamic accumulation of form. The colors and textures are inspired by my surroundings and the feelings evoked by this place. These objects are made of a variety of materials that may include hand cut brass, silver, powdercoat, steel, and semi- precious stones. The engravings on the powdercoat are of those same topographic shapes.
