THE EARTH BLING EXPERIMENT
DEB K WILLIAMS
The Earth Bling Experiment is an installation of small, formal, interconnecting objects, drawings and fragments that has its basis in two random sentences that the artist found while flicking through a 1960 Scientific American magazine. The first posed the question “What kind of jewels will they take to the moon?” the other simply stated, “Arranging a room for conversation”. These two phrases spoke to her interest in using a range of materials and processes to create formal sets of objects and drawings that not only respond to the multiplicity and complexity of the natural world but also refer to notions of connection and display. Using a myriad of materials and processes The Earth Bling Experiment forms an archive of process and reflects Williams’ deep interest in researching and exploring processes and materials to create new hybrid forms.
