The Contemporary Mourning Brooch Series commemorates the profound loss of life from the Covid-19 pandemic. These brooches recontextualize Victorian hair jewelry through the use of CAD/CAM technology. I recreate and then distort traditional woven hair patterns. This produces new forms that both reflect their Victorian origin, but are clearly the product of computer technology. The result is no longer about personal individual loss, but embraces the collective mourning that we are experiencing as a society.
