Jah Young Park
I chose to work with personal perception of landscape and pattern infused in my memories from hand to hand for generations to come. Thus, memory becomes more handy and is transformed into accessories such as rings, necklaces, and hair pins.
This exhibit is an approach to materialize my memories with two different aspects. The first is a reshaping of the weight of existence of glass as my medium which enables me to connect and ruminate the reflections of memories. the second is a pursuit of the unbearable lightness of memory melted into the illustration of thin glass surface.
Earrings are made with Pyrex glass (which is the most heat resistant and strong material used for cooking and experimenting), made by Glassalchemy Company, a Portland company. They always make a beautiful green color series. And the metal part is sterling silver or gold plate with silver.
