Jewellery by Dorothy de Lautour
Rosebank Road, just another small industrial pocket surrounded by mangroves, motorways and quiet suburbia, unexceptional and uncelebrated. This body of work uses jewellery as its medium and is intended as a celebration of Rosebank Road Peninsula. Genus: Rosebank references the natural order of a changing, reshaping and evolving environment by highlighting the evolution from an agricultural past to an industrial present.
Walter Benjamin, German literary critic and philosopher asserts,
In thousands of eyes, in thousands of objects, the city is reflected. It is the task of the urban physiognomist to read the experiences of the metropolis through the many fragments offered by the city. (Gilloch, 6)
With this in mind objects are recovered from the site and remade to reflect its current temperament and character.
