Nomadic Souvenirs

Mixed media, 2019, 4"w x 5"h x 2"d

My way of working is by collecting materials from different places and composing them into wearable objects. I chose the key chain shape because it is one of the most intimate objects we have—the key chain is always close to our body and it contains personal identity items. The materials I’m using—such as stones I pick from Israel, colorful plastic waste, metal remnants, etc.—are a way for me to ask questions about material politics and different kinds of values: emotional, financial, political and historical. I make “souvenirs” of allusive moments and places, simple actions represented in an object.
