In the jewelry format the wearer becomes a collaborator. The wearer chooses to be the « performer » of the jewelry object in the theater of social interaction. Works from the series ‘Found Subjects’ extend this chance collaboration as each piece responds to metaphorically resonant and aesthetically substantive aspects of selected book titles or bindings. A resonant disjuncture occurs between the anticipated, actual, and ultimately metaphorical content created by the juxtaposition of the used book titles/bindings and jewelry pieces with their implied ‘site’ of the body/wearer. The initial context for interpretation is created in the containment of the jewelry piece in the book which inspired it. I have not read any of the books as I was not interested in illustrating, but in responding to the title, or purely visual information, and common knowledge of the given subject. Interested in chance procedures which are sort of antithetical to metalwork, I was intrigued by the inverted methodology of interpreting a found title, in a sense the use of a found object, or in this case found content. A less consciously chosen parameter was that dimensions of each piece are limited to the space of the book.
