Footprints on the floor

The jewellery is about the relationship between the architectural space and the human body through industrial materials. It is questioning the way building materials that define architectural spaces affect the human body, and how this relation with space could be expressed in material terms. Aluminium foam I use to create brooches and necklaces allows jewellery to be big in size and light in weight. The jewellery work is about links between human bodies and spaces, in specific, the spaces of transition, and of possibilities of objects such as jewellery to function as mediators in everyday Settings.
