‘Unattainable bling’ examines the relationship between materiality and conceptual content, focusing on the futility of contemporary ideologies surrounding wealth, materialism and self-fulfillment. The process in making the artworks is filtering, selecting, editing and assembling materials that are detritus, low-tech and often disposable in an attempt to emphasize the impoverished materiality of the artworks. This is done with the notion of challenging the concept of value placed on an object. The installation will consist of sculptures and photographs that reference street-culture objects of protest, reflecting upon the relationship between social unrest, identity and the constraints of attempting to attain the unattainable.
