My work explores how the digital age, in which social media significantly influences everyday life, changes language through computer-mediated communication.
A flood of colourful emojis question the rule of letters and reveal a tendency to re-develop language based on pictorial signs. What meaning do we attribute to the individual letters of the alphabet? Can we look at them detached from predestined archetypes and experiences? When does a letter become an abstract sign, a form or even an object?
Searching for an answer, the observer‘s view and one‘s own body play an important role in my jewellery. The various treatments of materiality and the abstraction of existing characters initiate different ways of looking at original structures.
