The central theme of my work is the idea of control, both in the physical world around us and within our own consciousness. I am fascinated by the physical means of control we encounter such as locks, ladders, gates, utility maintenance areas, steam tunnels, industrial facilities and access points. I am deeply interested in the overt and covert influence of these unseen structures and systems of everyday existence that modify our experiential reality. Through the creation of my jewelry, I seek to explore the nature of the unconscious mind, and create physical representations and reinterpretations of the structures of my internal mental landscape that represent a re-constructed reality. By taking ones innermost fears and insecurities and creating physical objects to wear and interact with, one is able to identify and control the subconscious forces at play within ones mental landscape.
