I believe worn objects have the potential to affirm our knowledge of the body when worn. To examine the reciprocal relationship between the body and worn objects, this series of rings and ear forms was created on ice and plaster casts of human body parts and directly onto the human body. The intention of the pieces was to highlight the totality of the body as a space in three dimensions, by examining the potential forms of the void around the body. Furthermore through the use of molten materials that instantaneously coagulated, a moment on the body was captured. The final spontaneous forms had infinitely, multiple possibilities when created. Limiting the influence over these objects enabled the pieces to embody an instant on the body. This reflects the infinite potential of the body in a moment and the unique temporality and pace of the individual when worn.
