1″ x 2″, glass
This pendant is very special because it’s part of another chain for “Translations“, a project that I participated in just before Covid. This week I received a poem from Maya, inspired by a painting by Tova, and this pendant is my response to the poem. My pendant will be passed to Maria to inspire an assemblage. With themes of reflection and identity, the poem made me think about the way that the reflection of an object is distorted. The distortion can make it look more impressive than it really is, or less. My fingers are crossed (hard) that in this week’s elections the country will vote based on what’s real and not based on a distorted reflection of reality that makes things seem better than they are. The design represents a moon in a dark sky, reflected in the waves below.
