We are all in this together. Balance is the equaling of all forces on an object. On one side, two rabbits stand upright on a bar. But on the other side, one rabbits hangs over an edge. These rabbits are in equilibrium but also in tension — if the rabbit were to fall, the imbalance would also cause the other two to fall. A balanced form in an unbalanced situation. What consequences lead to situations like these, and what actions alter it...

The Spring/Summer 2018 collection is based around the theme of balance. Fittingly, I photographed the three designs using my first-year architecture school model (painted white), a project using a blank site, relocating the landscape to balance the cut and fill, and creating harmony between the landscape and inserted abstract pieces. The personal obsession with balance is a struggle to find harmony in one's daily life; balancing life and work, art and business, passion and responsibility. I made these pieces as a reminder that balance is possible.

The pendant is bent by the weight of the rabbits and creates a fulcrum that acts as a point of balance in the piece. If you tap the piece, it will juggle back and forth to find its center of gravity and a equilibrium. The rabbits were meticulously crafted using digital sculpting and handmade sketches.
