These earrings are part of the series "Precious Fragile" which illustrates the transformation of surface textures and thus in aesthetics, caused by chemical processes. The pieces explore the value of decomposing materials from the change to fragility and highlight the potential and beauty of what is traditionally regarded as “unattractive“.
Due to the fact, that the PFT2.0 are mainly made out of thread, they are very light-weight. Through a process of decomposition, the support material could be separated from the thread. Front and backside are almost identical, that's why the earrings can be worn on both sides. About 38 000 stitches are needed for one earring to create this detailed artwork which combines handcraft with modern production techniques.
