Joo Hyung Park, 2016, South Korea

Fused 2

I encountered a chance to break a piece, which represented my ideal as a jewellery artist. The expectations were low. However, I was able to find a different beauty, but it was still connected to me. There cannot be any alternation or compromise with your perfection. However, the beauty from denying my ideal led me to think about the possibilities of finding another beauty, which can also be considered as another perfection. By melting, crashing or peeling off the surface of a perfectly constructed object, I was able to create the pieces, which showed me the way to self-discovery.
