contact



A number of years ago I came across this quote and it has had a big impact on the work that I have made.

...It is possible to see without being seen but it is not possible to touch without at the same time being touched. One never emerges intact from any contact.

Denis Hollier The Politics of Prose





materials trigger experiences and emotions, some are overt, others subtle.

Some things are not seen but through suggestion still experienced.

Jewellery is worn everyday. Sometimes for a lifetime. And it also wears away with age. and through contact.
