LEFTOVERS

-WINTER 2019-

A MATERIALITY-BASED PROJECT WHICH EXPERIMENTS WITH RHUBARB AND REUSED CARDBOARD TO CREATE A WEARABLE SET OF EARRINGS. THE SHREDDED CARDBOARD CREATES AN ORGANIC, TREE OR ROCK-LIKE APPEARANCE TO WHICH LÉA ADDED RHUBARB PEELS. FUSING TOGETHER TWO UNCANNY MATERIALS, HER JEWELLERY PIECE EXPLORES ENVIRONMENTAL WASTE AS WELL AS MAKES A DISTINCTION BETWEEN RECYCLABLE AND COMPOSTABLE WASTE. THE RESULT IS AN IMAGINATIVE TAKE ON RECYCLING THAT GIVES A FRESH LIFE TO DISCARDED MATERIALS, IN WHICH LÉA PRODUCES A PAIR OF UNIQUE, INIMITABLE EARRINGS.
