Body of Work

Positioning photographs on the human body as jewelry leads us towards a different dimension and opens up different perspectives as well as an exploration of the photographic medium. Viewers and wearers see the photos in a new way when worn on the body as pieces of jewelry. Changing environments bring continuously shifting relationships into being.


By wearing jewelry we are therefore involved in actively changing the context of the photos, and we interact with these pieces much more closely and directly than with an image hanging on a wall rather isolated and independent. Thus the meaning of the image is varied, modified and communicated diversely. Through the small format and specific crops the depicted images are perceived differently, realities become blurred and are transformed into something new. Jewelry is worn in various situations, including in everyday life remote from galleries and museums. Consequently an abundance of connotations and links previously not thought of arise.


In my works the image itself – without any further decorative trimmings – becomes a gem.
