New Work 2013

Statement: A silver spoon, separated from its intended function, a form now incapable of feeding.
Dismembered, yes, but also transformed from an artifact of social roles and rituals nearing extinction to a commemorative emblem celebrating the ability of an object to be layered with histories while also transcending them.
The tarnish of time is removed and replaced by an intentional patina.
The form, reclaimed from expected function, honors the object with an afterlife, freed from service and given new dignity.
Reassigned as pendants they are now tasked with providing the slightest pull, to remind bodies in the present of the weight of the past.
