FEATURE ARTIST - Bridie Lander, Sydney, Australia (currently Birmingham, UK)

Pollen Pendant Models

Lander’s work broadly encompasses an interest in science and technology and how this informs cultural paradigms. In past work the form of her jewellery pieces have been heavily derived from scientific instrumentation. A common thematic is the plump, a metaphor for balance, a possible physic balance, acquired by the wearer through the use of the talismanic qualities traditionally attributed to jewellery. The jewellery pieces are created to have an interaction with the wearer, an interaction as simple as tactility, kinetic or more recently the olfactory engagement of the senses.
