Untitled (Tagliatelle)

Untitled (Tagliatelle) 18X36X20cm (2023) is a loom-woven beaded sheet pasta turned tagliatelle, made of reclaimed vintage Japanese beads that playfully challenges the traditional notions of art, consumption, and waste. The intricate beadwork mimics the delicate strands of pasta, contemplating the interplay between everyday objects and their artistic potential.

Untitled (Paper Towel)

Untitled (Beaded Towel) (2023-24) delves into the interplay between disposable consumer culture and the intrinsic value of traditional craftsmanship. By juxtaposing the ephemeral nature of paper towels with the enduring beauty of intricate beadwork, I explore themes of transience and preservation. It prompts viewers to question the sustainability of our consumption habits and the overlooked potential for artistry in everyday objects. Through this juxtaposition, I aim to ignite conversations about materialism, resourcefulness, and the delicate balance between convenience and environmental consciousness.
