dc.description.abstractA Hollow Hold is a collection of necklaces and objects that point to sites on the body to interpret the impossibilities of telling. Cradling stolen moments of breath and bearing the weight of memory, each piece refers to the center: the core, the spine, the gut, and the heart. The works narrate truth, memory and permanence - functioning as a type of armor and testimony to the privacy of night. Through the process of creating these objects, I transfer the heartbeats of memories into the stillness of the work. Using the study of semiotics and sociology, I arrive at objects that collectively function as a physical pledge to hope.en_US
