dc.description.abstractFollowing an evolution of the fishing industry, my tool collections have been created as emblematic objects of human consumerism. My fabricated works draw curiosity with the refined metal objects themselves, but they also incite a sense of danger with sharp lines and points indicating that human consumerism is dangerous and harmful to the environment. My research has focused on the inevitable extinction of the voiceless sea creatures that are rapidly becoming endangered due to human activities. I examine how metals have been used in human history, how they have been wielded toward animals and the environment and I have reinterpreted these tools and weapons through the perspective of an artist. I invite the audience to explore the relationship between self, tools, and the fragile natural world, and to consider the direction in which we will make history on this planet.en_US
