Intro
Demi Thomloudis' work is realized through a neurotic process of improvisation and spontaneity, which exposes unplanned moments within the materials. These moments act as ornament and the jewelry’s’ seemingly humble construction exposes and celebrates the act of making.

Demi Thomloudis
There is only a perspective seeing, only a perspective ´knowing´, and the more affects we allow to speak about one thing, the more eyes, different eyes, we can use to observe one thing, the more complete will our ´concept´ of this thing, our ´objectivity,´ be.
- Friedrich Nietzche, On the Genealogy of Morals, trans. Walter Kaufmann and R.J. Hollingdale (New York: Random House, 1967), p. 119.
 
My Jewelry is inspired by the fragmentary aesthetic of informal architectural construction, temporary spaces and Bricolage. The work is realized through a neurotic process of improvisation and spontaneity, which exposes unplanned moments within industrial materials such as cement, steel, and wood. I am interested in how these moments act as ornament and how the jewelry’s’ seemingly humble construction exposes and celebrates the act of making and the interaction of the materials themselves. Through the lens of jewelry and changes in scale, weight, and texture, these assemblages and designs ask the viewer to consider new associations to these materials and their intimate relationship to the body as adornment.
