Life is constantly changing and
evolving around us. Change can come quickly or gradually; it may be minute
or drastic. However, it is natural for all of us to crave stability and
resist change. But we cannot escape from change; we must struggle to adapt
to it and ultimately embrace it. The idea of change is expressed in many
ways such as modification, reversal, exchange, and alteration. These are all
changes that we contend with in our daily lives. Expectations are modified,
roles are reversed, ideas are exchanged and plans are altered.
Through my pieces, I want the wearer
to contemplate their transforming environment and how they react to it.
Thus, my pieces force the wearer to reconsider the object in relation to
their surroundings because the pieces change with the will of the wearer or
the dynamic of the environment. The idea is to illustrate the resilience of
the human being to survive change, to be living in a state of flux that
keeps folding back upon itself.
Like the human condition, my pieces change.
Some of the pieces have small changes and others have more radical changes.
However, the pieces do not permanently change, they merely change with the
wearer. They all move or are worn in different ways in order for the wearer
to interact with the piece. The changes in the pieces symbolize “change”
within the confines of the human condition.
