Flatland V Brooch

Hand sawing and hand fabricated brooch. The Flatland series is inspired by a novel of the same name written more than 100 years ago, which describes a land that exists only in a two-dimensional world. It is a seemingly fixed but fluid perspective on class and beyond, on dimensions and beyond, and on the interrogation of class. The inspiration of the plane country made me reflect on the process of learning to create art jewelry, which is always a process of trying to transform from 2D to 3D, and the world experienced through visuals is always limited. So, what if we go back from 3D to 2D? The illusion of vision can easily frame us in a specific perception or concept. The world we see in our eyes is based on an objectively existing 3D world, but the world we can imagine should go far beyond this dimension. Hand cutting is always at the heart of my work, the seemingly infinite repetition of the process creates a space of independence. A world where one can talk to oneself, a hundred times over.
