Kylie Sinkovich: Statement
Containment of open space has been a line of inquiry for this project. Sinkovich explores Japanese design and architecture sensibilities around creating sacred space and the practice of ‘holding space’. In this instance, for a jewellery piece to be held. Traditionally jewellery boxes were decorative vessel's with the function of concealment in order to preserve its contents. Influenced by early Shinto sites of worship which celebrate natural features in the wild rather than grand structures, she has engaged an approach of simplicity and vastness into these ‘open space containers’.
