In her brooches, Yaiza Rodriguez Sánchez deals with the relationship to the body, the relationship between bodies and space and the forms of behaviour that depend on it. She examines the influence of materials and shapes on sensory perception. She combines handicraft, researching material by hand, and modern technologies such as laser cutting or thermoforming in order to produce repetitive patterns, geometric shapes or quick prototypes. She regards her work as a kind of organ. The brooches seem to bulge out of the skin, to connect with the body. The irritating pieces of jewellery want to be explored and discovered. They invite reflection and discussion and call for a more intense experience and perception. In fact, they are small bump-like spheres that are opened to reveal an organ-like interior. This consists of differently sized bubble-like structures that appear like sensory cells, an impression that is underlined by the pink colouring.
