first work in neurons

I’m forever surprised by just how much thoughts can diverge from the reality of what’s possible and how much this impacts the creative process. and motivation.

Young-ha Kim’s talk is one of the best I’ve seen on this recently.

“write like crazy
when you write slowly lots of thoughts creep in. the artist devil creeps in.
you can’t do it
you have to run fast so the devil can’t catch up”

its true. as much as it seems that thinking will give you the answer to something, it often doesn’t.

The longer this process lingers the more it’s derailed and the more thats held back.

Circumventing the over burdened consciousness is creating. and it makes you more alive.

I’m so far behind in sharing what I’ve been working on. The past few months I’ve been part of some great projects. Lots of new rings and designs. Some have been used in shoots here in Brisbane and in Sydney. Including some earcuffs I made for Sarah Birchley. I will post photos when they’re released. And some darker work is on the way as a collaboration with Glen Krohn and TamZen Holland, really looking forward to revealing this in the coming months.

the focus of the past few weeks has been on my first work in neurons. I’ve included some of the earliest work below. These are will be rings and small sculptures made entirely of silver, exploring neuronal form in different states and part a bigger project to link with neuroscience.
