In the Year 2011 I got invited to an international art exhibition i Eno, Finland, together with two other well known artists from our county, Inger Södergren and Christina Wassberg. I wanted to make something that interacted with the audience, explored the creative process and stretched my borders of what jewellery can become.
I desided to use 100 times 17 cm of silverthread, made 100 small insects, all different but all holding a green glas pearl, as a symbol for environment. I built 100 small dark wooden frames that each of thoose could hang inside of behind glass, with a round hole at the top where you were able to pull them out and release them from their prison.
I put the hundred frames on three wall sections, and wrote this text to sit next to them:
To make an interactive art installation on the theme Consumsion. And to explore and edit the creative borders and the creative process, and making this visible to the public.
