Winner GRA Award 2016 Thesis
Everybody needs a rock
Based on an inspiration from an article about the discovery of new kinds of rock which contains plastic debris, I have been collecting plastic rubbish on a street, melting them down, and creating plastic gem stones out of it. I observe the qualities in each stones, and turn them into jewellery. In another word, I become a miner, a nature force which creates the stones, a stone cutter and a jeweller at the same time. This project contains, 9 pieces of jewellery, drawings of the stones and texts about each stones. These three elements create a kind of parallel world which gives the audience a new way of looking at things. And beside this main project, I will show two more different sub projects which also relate to my thesis.
