I use basic materials that define space: steel chain and short lengths of steel wire. The structures are minimal, spacious, without complexity.

Artist list

Rebekah Frank
Despite the geometry and material, they are not hard pieces. Softness enters the pieces as they drape and conform to the environment they interact with, the gentle pull of gravity, the planar surfaces of a table, the curves of the body. There is a delicacy in the line and in the structure, but these flexible perimeters create their own spaces, capturing a moment within their curves and edges.

These pieces are necklaces, they are drawings, they are possibilities.
They stand alone, but they can interact and still maintain their individuality. They leave room for interpretation, creating space for the viewer to exist.

I am interested in the variety that one piece, one simple structure, can contain. How does the piece maintain its own perimeters no matter how it is pushed or pulled, draped or stretched… even when a human form is inserted into the space. /
