The body is a point from which to rethink the opposition between the inside and the outside, the public and the private, the self and the other, and all other binary pairs associated with mind/body opposition. “Is that the gay ear?” was a question asked by most after my piercing, in which I often replied, “My ear is gay?”.

Exploring the masculine relationship with body adornment and jewellery.

The disassembling and reconstruction of objects with personal connections. Reflecting personal integration and sharing of creativity, simulating relationships with the user through the item. Dismantling concepts of masculinity and jewellery.
