Threshold I, 2018
fine silver, thread

A threshold marks a boundary: an in-between existence of two places. Doorways, gates and entrances are all manifestations of these spaces. This piece is both a physical representation of a doorframe and at the same time acts as one for the body. Each strip of fine silver was rubbed and marked over a doorframe, then stitched together into a necklace. When wearing it one gains a heightened sense of awareness of their body moving through space.





Threshold II, 2018
graphite, sterling silver, thread 

In this second rendition of the Threshold series, ten thinly sliced sheets of graphite were placed over the bottom portion of a doorframe and walked over — creating a fracture in each segment. Each piece was reconstructed in the order is was stepped on, remembering its previous life upon a threshold and simultaneously creating a new one forthe body.
