White bronze, stainless steel, Eucalyptus, Protea, Gold Medallion seed pods | 2023
Serpsâtes is a series of pendant mobiles that when hung together create a suspended garden of fallen, dried seed pods from their native areas. Stainless steel rods joined with bonding components build kinetic pendants, transforming what is essentially nature’s trash into a piece of meditative contemplation. The viewer is encouraged to take a step towards understanding that living in harmony with the natural world is the only way forward. Humans rely on nature’s “services” — clean air and water - far more than we rely on profit and technology. With biodiversity on the knife’s edge, there is no more pressing issue than reshaping our relationship with the natural world.
