Acia Somnium brooch from the collection Microvita was made in 2017. A metamorphosis of a butterfly that is changing its colours, the light and size. Constructing materials like fish bones, wood and silver together. The colours include dark red, rose and golden. White textures on hard but fragile material. With the simplicity of materials they are looking for harmony and individual expression. With this intention, opaque bodies and pieces of this preciousness tempt our senses. When working with emotions on a precious material and bringing them into it, it is like emotions coming out by hearing music.
It’s like a figment of my imagination. Reality as lifestyle is too confining. Since, reality is a collective feeling. Doors to the other worlds to other perceptions to fantasy. After all, an infinite metamorphosis of a butterfly And life.
“Our world functions within the limitations of our senses and perceptions
Whatever we do not know, we either say that it is non-existent or abstract
Reality is a collective feeling
A metamorphosis of a butterfly
Represents a thought of an immortal energy
Micro – small, Vita – living.”
Acia Somnium brooch is a one of a kind piece and reminds of a miraculous sea animal. The name comes from marine invertebrates living in the Great Barrier Reef.
