Heart (series “Squares”)

Using electric forming, i have transformed found objects into metal and then restored the original colour and shape with enamel. My message is the question whether the value of found objects still remains after the transformation. In addition, I have also inserted the concept of jewellery and sculpture into this piece by taking the jewellery’s functionality as a partial form of the object. Hence, the work no longer only serves a function, but also expresses the concept of a micro-sculpture. This group of works was created with a sculptural concept in mind, and as for material performance, the contrast of smooth and coarse texture was created.

Copper, enamel, plastic, 4×4×18cm
