Lethe, 24 Hours

Jesmonite, silver

A necklace and a narrative object telling a story; something about forgetfulness and remembrance. The jesmonite components are all reiterations of a single object, cast repeatedly in flour which creates a gradual disintegration; a progression which is then reversed. I use flour casting as an attempt to capture something fleeting in physical form. The moulds my objects are cast from are fragile and unstable, they exist for only as long as it takes to create the next object and are then destroyed by that object’s removal.

The sequence “forgets” for twelve and then “remembers” for twelve, creating a continual cycle with no start or finish.
