The Wealth of Njǫrd

Date of Creation: March 11, 2023

List of Materials: Orange colored cardstock, blue handmade paper, orange thread, purple beads, card glue

Dimensions: (9H x 7L x 19W)

Photographer's Name: Maxine Fair

Model's Name: Lindsey Foster

Other Contributors: George Peinado (assistant photographer, editor)

Conceptual Statement: This vector form necklace project was inspired by Norse mythology, specifically Njǫrd, the god of the wind and sea. I wanted to create a shoulder cloak in relation to his power that extends across the shoulders. Orange paper serves as the main material for the vector forms, providing a bright and lively surface. Added spots of blue provide contrasting color, which is made more intense by the blue lighting of the photography studio. The blue cast of the image intends to exemplify the deep water of the ocean and the blades of light reaching down from far above. The design itself is made from warping and enlarging the same 'flower' design, which have intricate curls as if they are being blown by wind. These forms create multiple structures across the shoulders, with a large epaulet wrapping around from one shoulder to a retreating cloud of the material on the other to create a duality. This appearance mimics a sort of Viking armor, which strengthens the image of undersea Viking vigilance.
