I’ve always worked in a breadth of media, making jewellery, hollowware, and other types of objects. In this exhibition, I’m showing a series of four-tone generators, each producing a concert pitch; A 440 Hertz. I see them as a natural component of the jewellery project I call ‘Kammertonen’ or ‘Tune In’ which is spotlighted here. In this case, they set the tone for the entire exhibition. Although they produce sound, I don’t envision them as musical instruments. Rather, they are creature-like, inquisitive and asking for interaction, coming alive at the hand of the spectator.
