Dust our lowest common denominator (Bachelor exam work 2013)
We are all made of stardust; all life sprung out of collapsing stars. Even today it rains down small particles of dust containing diamonds and gold whose origins are from the beginning of our time.
There is magic in the air.
Dust is everywhere because everything is its source. Through the dust, we can read the history of our universe. It holds the information of what has happened, what happens right now and what will happen. Every material erodes and transforms into something else. From dust we came and to dust we shall return.
I have captured that magic in my jewellery; it contains the curiosity of the small and forgotten.
With a humble feeling, I now realize that we are all the same, a part of something bigger that started with the dust.
I have found a sense of belonging; even in the darkest corner you can find magic.
