I am mainly working with the definition of new contemporary values in the modern society, putting the main accent on functional and material values like money, petroleum, credit cards, gold and religion.
I am using the terms of Jewelmoney (Schmuckgeld) and Commodity money, Exchange value and Utility value as a historical reference.
The natural value is disappearing in our society: ages ago money was made out of gold, then precious metals were used for it´s production, now we are used to paper banknotes, plastic cards and even virtual money. The value became psychological. By translating this material values in the media of jewellery, I am giving them another functional value, often associated with jewellery.
My work concentrates on material symbolic and corruption of values and it´s translation in the media of jewellery.
