FRIDAYS NO FUTURE
Brooch / Decoration and Photo Collage
Inspired by ´Fridays for Future‘, an environmental youth movement initiated by Greta Thunberg, I named my piece FRIDAYS NO FUTURE. It is meant as a decoration for all those who dismiss climate change for the benefit of capitalism and a culture determined by consumption.
This art work was made for the exhibition SITE EFFECTS - Jewelry from either side of the Atlantic - curated by Katja Toporski and myself. The exhibition took place at the Bavarian Association of Art & Craft, Munich, January 17th – February 29th 2020 and the Baltimore Jewelry Center, Baltimore,
Pendant/Brooch and Collage
To me, the collage speaks of the ability to improvise and of confidence in the future despite bizarre circumstances. Hence, it reminded me of Zen in the sense of being relaxed and not worrying about things that you cannot change.

LOOT OF A WEEK
Contribution to IN FIERI - BRUSSELS JEWELRY WEEK
April 29 to May 8.2022
The idea of LOOT OF A WEEK is to engage with our plastic trash of one week instead of silently disposing it.
This requires shredding the plastic trash and measuring its volume through trying to fit it into the plastic pearls.
LOOT OF A WEEK suggests to set a new limit: The volume of plastic trash each coming week should be the same or less. Empty ‘pearls’ make the improvements visible, and thus, they might become more precious than real pearls. The potential wearability of LOOT OF A WEEK symbolically underlines that our trash is part of our personal identity.
