This collaborative project with fellow artists Roberta Massuch
, and Kelly Tate
began with participants being asked to take a brief (non-scientific) survey. All individuals were asked to participate blindly; yet fully aware that their responses would result in an object being created for them. The porcelain necklaces were an intermediary material for participants to tap into alter egos chosen for them in response to those survey answers. Clay was the stage and the photographs were the end result.
