New&Old | 2017
I’m fascinated in everyday objects and the connection between the owner and things. Lighter is one of my personal items that I used it and carry it in my usual life. I started using my personal items as a raw material to express my obsession in everyday objects through the pieces of wearable object. “Do you have a light”, 2013 and “I light you”, 2014 are the first two collections that I started using lighter as my main material to tell my everyday story through my personal items.
“New&Old” a collection, that I created a new form and meaning of lighters through my daily life experiences. Each piece is made from old lighters (I collected) and new lighters (new one) together by using the idea of grafting process.
(Grafting or graftage : Grafting creates a plant propagation through the joining of two plants into one)
