Intro
What are the properties of a void? What defines and creates a void? How to define emptiness? And is an empty space automatically a void? It is these questions that make up the theme I am working on.

Artist list

Karin Seufert
If you consider a void a space, then it has a close connection to architecture.
The pendants made of PVC, one of the results of my research, are hollow shapes that might guide one's associations to rooms, buildings, roofs or to parts of architecture in general.
With their fragile 
walls, they create voids.

My second approach to the theme of void focuses on the absence itself.
The idea was to take a jewel related to a special person and showing the void by showing the absence of that person.
The very first idea that popped up was the wedding ring. No other jewel is so 
close connected to a person.
I filled the inside with wax thereafter I cast the wax form in metal. The so received cylinder I put on top of a ring, to give it the prominent place usually the one a precious stone get.
 
Then I choose small objects, which have a close relation to the body. I started out by casting the inside of different spoons.
This procedure resulted in a series of pendants in black anodized 
aluminum.
The pendants, due to their 
color and size, are reminiscent of heavy amulets. Depending on the initial shape of the spoons, however, some of them also resemble drops or tears. The anodized layer bears white spots that make you think of the stars in the night sky.
